Membership Information

Although CAP has over 200 members and more than 100 active Therapy Teams, we are unable to meet the demand for visits. Additional Therapy Teams are always needed. If you have a dog that you believe would be a good therapy participant, please check out our training page and complete an online application for our next training class. 

We also welcome members who support our mission but don’t have a pet for visiting. Members are needed to help with: fundraising, community participation, public relations, member services, and our library and school programs.

CAP never charges for the visits made by our Therapy Teams. We rely on membership dues and donations to cover our expenses. Won’t you become a member of CAP?
