  • Dover Days Pet Parade

Due to COVID-19, most facilities are closed to NCTD therapy dog visits, but we are scheduling training classes, virtual workshops, and in-person meet-and-greets as we prepare to resume visits this spring. As always, we will continue to focus on the safety of our clients and volunteers.

NCTD requests that all volunteers and participants in NCTD sponsored activities who are medically able receive a COVID vaccine prior to taking part in any therapy team visit, indoor class, open floor, evaluation or other event. The current CDC guidelines for masking and social distancing should be followed by attendees at all NCTD events being held indoors or outdoors.
