Capital Therapy Dogs is an all-volunteer organization that registers handlers and their dogs as therapy dog teams to support programs in the Greater Sacramento CA area. Our teams encourage children to read and bring joy to those in need of a smile.
At our clients' requests and when we feel it is safe to do so, we are resuming programs that were paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to adding more activities where appropriate.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about our organization.
Thank you for your interest in Capital Therapy Dogs.

Therapy dogs are friendly pets that, together with their friendly human handlers, bring comfort and happiness to others. Therapy dogs are NOT service dogs.
Prior to applying for provisional membership with Capital Therapy Dogs, your dog should be at least one year old and been your dog for no fewer than six months.
Obedience skills and a friendly temperament are important success factors. Obedience and therapy dog training classes are beneficial for both you and your dog.
There are several organizations that register handlers and animals other than dogs as therapy teams. Search online or email us for suggestions.
We are an all-volunteer non-profit. Check out our Playbook and other material on the More Info page.
We will be accepting new volunteers once it is safe to begin our volunteer programs. If you would like someone to contact you, please scroll down to Contact Us.
