Puget Sound Field Office Training Center
The Puget Sound Field Office is an extension of the organization’s Northwest Region, based in Santa Rosa, California. First of its kind, this office is in addition to the other six regional training centers and supports local clients and volunteers while continuing to place more expertly trained service dogs with people with disabilities in the Puget Sound area, at no cost to them.
Unique to the Puget Sound Field Office, dogs in professional training will be fostered by volunteers, giving them a safe home, love and exercise, and transporting them to and from the facility for training each day during the week.
Currently, Canine Companions serves 55 service and facility dog teams in the Puget Sound, and more than 80 teams in the state of Washington. The organization is supported by more than 30 volunteer puppy raisers in the Puget Sound, and additional volunteers in other roles, including events and fundraising.
Canine Companions is looking for more volunteer puppy raisers and fosters for dogs in professional training.
