Puget Sound Chapter

Canine Companions
Northwest Region


The Puget Sound Chapter consists of enthusiastic volunteers, puppy raisers and graduate teams from Northwest Washington. Our mission is to support Canine Companions through fundraising and community awareness.

If you’re looking for deeper engagement as a Canine Companions volunteer, we encourage you to get involved with our chapter. The Puget Sound Volunteer Chapter is an extension of the Northwest Regional Training Center. We work to raise awareness, recruit new puppy raisers and volunteers and support one another’s work on behalf of the Canine Companions’ mission.

We are a lively network filled with opportunities for social engagement, from puppy classes to fundraisers. Beyond the satisfaction of doing good work for Canine Companions, lifelong friendships are often formed among chapter members. If you are interested in working with our chapter, contact us. We’d love to meet you!



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. Click to learn more about the Northwest region opportunities.
