Citizens for Animal Protection (CAP) kicked off their three-month adoption campaign with a record setting 143 pet adoptions on Saturday, Aug. 6 and Sunday, Aug. 7. The adoption fees were sponsored by West Houston Subaru.
In 2010, adoptions from Aug. 1-7 resulted in 80 adoptions. This year during the same one-week period, 283 pets found their forever homes.
CAP is one of 50 shelters nationwide that won the Qualifying Heat of the 2011 ASPCA $100K Challenge. The nationwide competition is for animal shelters aiming to get more animals adopted than during the same period last year. Taking place from Aug. 1 through Oct. 31, CAP will compete to find homes for more cats and dogs than ever before.
