The mission of the Capital Area Humane Society is to promote the humane treatment of companion animals through protection, placement, education and example.
To Achieve These Goals We:
Operate a shelter and provide adoption programs
Promote the spaying and neutering of all companion animals
Educate adults and children about animal welfare issues
Advocate animal welfare
Investigate reports of animal mistreatment
The Capital Area Humane Society is a companion-animal welfare organization. It is not an animal rights organization. It does not involve itself with issues that are not directly related to the above mission statement. For example, CAHS does not take a stand for or against such issues as hunting, furs, vegetarianism, exotic pets or vivisection (animals used for research purposes).
CAHS receives no tax dollars and relies on donations, fund raisers, bequests (wills), and adoption fees to fund its programs. CAHS is not affiliated with other humane organizations or animal control facilities.
