On January 29, the Citizens for Animal Protection (CAP) hosted a grand opening for their new facility in Houston, and director, Kappy Muenzer, invited the Rev. Bob Goolsby, rector of St. Christopher’s, Houston, to bless the building. St. Christopher’s is an active congregation of animal lovers, and Goolsby and his wife Karla are animal advocates as well.

Recognizing that a majority of CAP’s success in pet adoption depends on visibility, the CAP Board of Directors and volunteer leaders purchased a 3.5 acre parcel of land at 1-10 and Barker Clodine Road in 2006. In September 2009, Goolsby provided the blessing when CAP broke ground for construction of their new facility. The mayor of Houston, The Honorable Anise Parker spoke at the festive grand opening ceremonies of CAP’s new permanent home, The Jane Cizik Center, at 17555 Katy Freeway this January.


"Being visible in the community through events like this is great evangelism," said Bishop Andy Doyle.

CAP is a non-profit organization that provides shelter, adoption, foster care and rescue to Houston area animals and humane education to encourage love and respect for all animals. To find out more about CAP, its facility or how to volunteer, check out their website: or call 281-497-0591.


St. Christopher’s is located at 1656 Blalock in the Spring Branch area of Houston. Learn more about their work within the community, including pet adoption events, at
