Established in 1992 in Santa Cruz California, the Center for Animal Protection and Education (CAPE) is a non profit 501(c) 3 organization. CAPE provides sanctuary for injured, disabled and special needs animals, foster care and adoption for homeless dogs, humane education programs for children and adults, advocacy campaigns addressing current animal issues, and information for people who have questions or problems concerning animals.
CAPE’s animal sanctuary situated in the Sierra Foothills in Grass Valley, California, is a haven for animals with no other options for a safe place to go. Specializing in animals with disabilities, injuries or treatable medical conditions, the sanctuary can provide safety, comfort and rehabilitation to a variety of species.
CAPE's aim is to bring people and animals together in peaceful co-existence.
CAPE's Animal Film Festival
The first annual Animal Film Festival presented by CAPE was held this past Saturday, March 1 at the Center for the Arts in Grass Valley, CA. Hundreds of people came to see 22 films that were screened throughout the day. Several filmmakers were on stage after their films were screened to answer audience questions. Local animal groups were tabling in the lobby which provided them a great opportunity to meet many new potential supporters of their work. Thank you to everyone who made the Animal Film Festival a wonderful success. In the near future, a Call for Entries will be announced for the 2nd annual Animal Film Festival (2015). Hope to see you there!
