Companion Animal Protection Society (CAPS) needs helps filming dogs at Kern County Animal Services, a high-kill shelter in Bakersfield, CA. We are looking for local volunteers that can go to the shelter and shoot short videos on their phones of at-risk dogs. CAPS will edit and post the videos on our social media accounts to help get those dogs fostered or adopted quickly to prevent them from being euthanized.

Here is an example of the type of video we need:

We are very flexible on how often you go to the shelter or how much time you are able to spend. Please contact us if you are able to help or if you have any questions: CAPS@caps-web.org

Thank you!

About COMPANION ANIMAL PROTECTION SOCIETY

Location:

Mission Statement

Founded in 1992, the Companion Animal Protection Society (CAPS) is the only national nonprofit dedicated exclusively to protecting companion animals from cruelty in pet shops and puppy/kitten mills. CAPS addresses animal suffering through investigations, outreach, legislation, legal advocacy, consumer assistance, and rescue.

Description

When Deborah Howard witnessed the dreadful conditions at a Docktor Pet Center store in November 1989, she was appalled. The company had more than 300 franchises at that time. After learning more about the plight of pet shop and puppy mill dogs, Ms. Howard joined forces with Robert Baker, the foremost puppy mill investigator in the country. During his 13 years as chief investigator of The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), Mr. Baker inspected over 700 puppy mills.

Ms. Howard, a former radio news reporter, lawyer and PR professional, formed CAPS in 1990. The nonprofit became a 501(c)(3) in 1992. As a result of CAPS’ efforts, Docktor Pet Centers, Inc., which refused to do business without the sale of puppies, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in February 1993.
