About Us

Founded in 1957, the Captive Animals’ Protection Society (CAPS) is one of the UK’s longest-running charities working to protect animals.

Through a combination of undercover investigations, research, campaigns, political lobbying and education, our work focuses on protecting animals held in circuses and zoos, the TV and film industry and the exotic pet trade.

Working for a world without cages, we encourages a more compassionate attitude and relationship between humans and other animals.
