The Companion Animal Program of Cape Cod (CAP) is a non-profit organization. Our therapeutic teams participate in a variety of community-based events to provide support and encouragement to participants and share our mission of bringing the benefits of pet therapy to schools, libraries, assisted living and care facilities, hospitals, and other venues.  Some of the community-based events in which CAP took part in the past year are:

– Fraternal Order of Eagles Canal Walk
– Hounds of Highland
– Cape Cod Doxie Day
– American Society for Suicide Prevention Walk
– Dog Days of Summer at Cape Cod Beer Company, in Hyannis
– Howl-O-Ween Event and Costume Parade at Country Gardens, in Hyannis


Buzzards Bay Eagles: Fraternal Order of Eagles Cape Cod Canal Walk, May 18, 2024

CAP supported the Order of Eagles in their fundraiser for Toka’s Friends, a program in Rhode Island that trains and places service dogs with Veterans challenged by post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injuries (TBI). In the past, CAP benefitted from this event, and this year, we are happy to be paying it forward with our support for this worthy cause. Some of CAP’s participants are pictured here undeterred by the less-than-ideal weather.
