MAIL TO: CAAA – P.O. Box 5006 – Scottsdale, AZ 85261-5006After these materials are received, you will be contacted to
set up your observation of an experienced Social Pet Therapy team doing a routine visit. This is your time to ask questions and watch
how another volunteer approaches the residents and handles his or her animal during the visit. After this Observation Visit, a CAAA
volunteer will contact you for your first Evaluation Visit with your animal. The Evaluator will accompany you and make any suggestions
to get the most out of your future visits, both for your pet and for the elderly.
Our goal is to schedule your Observation and Evaluation
visits as soon as possible. Keep in mind, however, that CAAA's Social Pet Therapy program is 100% administered by volunteers who have
their own pet therapy visits, plus work and family time commitments. Under normal circumstances, you will be contacted in approximately
two weeks to schedule your first observation.
Should you have any questions, please call 602 258 3306 and leave your name, telephone
number, a good time to reach you, and your question. Your call will be returned as soon as possible.
