OUR MISSION

The mission of the Companion Animal Program of Cape Cod is to enhance the quality of life of our older and disabled population. CAP provides the enjoyment of trained and certified companion animals and individuals. Pets and Therapy Teams are expertly prepared to meet safety standards of behavior and excellence in the field of pet therapy.


BENEFITS OF ANIMAL ASSISTED ACTIVITIES

Visits performed on a regular basis affect beneficial results. Therapeutic and life enhancing rewards result when volunteer Therapy Teams interact with those confined in an institutional setting. Interaction encourages communication, reduces feelings of isolation, and gives the residents of these facilities a sense of importance because someone took the time to visit.

 


CAP training classQUALITY ASSURANCE

Before pets are welcomed into a formalized program there must be an acceptable standard of behavior to ensure client safety. Companion Animal Program Therapy Teams are first screened for appropriate physical well being and behavioral stability.
