VPH also partners with rescue groups and the veterinarian community and participates in a variety of community outreach events.

Citizens for Animal Protection, or CAP, provides shelter, adoption and foster care for stray pets. The organization also provides community outreach and education programs advocating love and respect for all animals.
CAP hosts an annual dog house competition at the World Series of Dog Shows. Each year, several families and organizations build and donate dog houses that are sold in an auction to raise money for CAP. We were proud to sponsor the competition this year as well as provide our own entry.
There are many opportunities at CAP to volunteer, donate or adopt a pet. To learn more about CAP, visit their website or Facebook page
