Bring NCTD to Your Facility

NCTD will consider visiting new facilities, provided they are suitable and we have the volunteers available to visit. Unfortunately, we are only able to add a small number of facilities each year. Facilities should have safe physical conditions for animal visits and must provide responsible support and supervision for our teams.

Your first step if you are interested in having us visit is for you to complete the Facility Application form on our Online Forms page. Once a facility applies, the NCTD Director of Facilities will conduct a preliminary over-the-phone survey and will usually follow up with an on-site visit. If both parties determine that NCTD visits are welcome, we will survey our volunteers to find those interested in visiting. For more information, please see our NCTD FAQs page, or visit the Leadership Team page to contact the NCTD Director of Facilities or the Regional Director in your area for further information.
