Code of Conduct and Social Pet Therapy Volunteer Job Description carefully.
To become a volunteer with our award-winning program, do the following:

Return the following:

(1) The completed CAAA Membership Form

(2) A check for your Membership / Dues contribution

(3) The completed Social Pet Therapy Application form

(6) A signed copy of the Code of Conduct

(7) A signed Copy of the Social Pet Therapy Volunteer Job Description

(8) Two (2) photos of your pet


(The photos do not need to be identical, but one will be used for your ID badge and should crop to a clear 1-1/8" x 1-3/8" head shot—the MAXIMUM SIZE to properly fit on the badge.)

MAIL TO: CAAA – P.O. Box 5006 – Scottsdale, AZ 85261-5006

After 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 leave your name and telephone number, a good time to reach you, and your question. Your call will be returned as soon as possible.
