We believe

We believe that wild animals do not belong in cages

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 for animals focuses predominantly on issues affecting those individuals held captive in circuses and zoos, as well as those used in the television and film industry and the exotic pet trade.

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


The Captive Animals’ Protection Society is a registered charity and receives no government funding. Registered number: 1124436
