The Diamond Volunteer Chapter was established in 2022 after many years of being a Canine Companions Group. Our chapter serves the entire state of Arkansas and consists of volunteers, puppy raisers, and graduate teams who actively work to support and further the mission of Canine Companions.
The goals of our volunteer chapter are to:
The Diamond Volunteer Chapter is proud to be part of the South Central Region of Canine Companions, located in Irving, Texas. There, the Baylor Scott & White – Kinkeade Campus offers ideal facilities for providing professional training for service dogs and preparing clients for their future with a service dog.
If you share in our passion for the mission of Canine Companions and are looking for a great place to give of your time and energy, we encourage you to get involved with our chapter. Please contact us about how you can volunteer – we would love to meet you!
We are always looking for volunteer puppy raisers. These amazing volunteers donate their time and effort in the care and socialization of future service dogs. Learn more at canine.org/puppyraiser.
Join us for one (or more!) of our Diamond Volunteer Chapter meetings to learn more about how you can get involved with the chapter and support the mission of Canine Companions. Please contact us if you have any questions.
