Canine Companions
Northwest Region


Formed in 1996, the Gold Rush Chapter is the largest volunteer chapter of Canine Companions. Comprised of Canine Companion graduate teams, puppy raisers, breeder caretakers, and DogFest supporters, we proudly serve the greater Gold Rush areas including Sacramento, CA and surrounding areas. Gold Rush members actively support Canine Companions by participating in community awareness programs and fundraising.


Volunteer with the Gold Rush Chapter

We’d love to have you help us share the mission of Canine Companions.
The Northwest Regional Center is located in Santa Rosa, California, and utilizes hundreds of volunteers.
