Union County Animal Protection Society

Union County Animal Protection Society (UCAPS) was incorporated in 1985 as a non-profit, tax-exempt organization, dedicated to the animal welfare of Union County, Arkansas. The shelter facility, located at 1000 Sunset Road, El Dorado, was constructed in 1988. The shelter operates under the leadership of one shelter manager and several full and part-time employees. The staff lovingly cares for more than 200 animals daily.

The UCAPS Adoption and Education Center, located at 727 E. Main Street, El Dorado, opened January 2020. The facility allows for families to meet and interact with an animal in a home-style setting. Adoption facilitations, community outreach programs, educational sessions, arts and crafts, movie and game nights, pet health services, TRN (trap, neuter, and return for stray and feral cats) training and trapping sessions, and lots of animal cuddling are just a few of the activities you will find at the AEC.

UCAPS works to promote positive interactions between our community and animals through education in responsible pet ownership and healthy pet living. UCAPS goal is to enrich the lives of the members of our community, both human and animal.
