The Lone Star Chapter is comprised of volunteers from a variety of backgrounds and all walks of life coming together to fulfill the mission of Canine Companions for Independence. Volunteers are a tremendous resource and are at the heart of everything we do. There are a variety of ways you can get involved within our chapter and our region. Below are some opportunities. If you are interested in any of these, please complete the contact form.
In a state as big as Texas, we are always in need of more volunteers, especially puppy raisers. Puppy raisers are often asked how they do what they do and why they do it. The journey of a puppy raiser isn't always as easy as it is cute, but it changes many lives along the way. Learn more about how you can help give a dog a job by raising a future assistance dog.
The Lone Star Chapter is recruiting for a DogFest Chair to join the leadership team for the upcoming year. Additionally, we are in need of volunteers who can get involved in a variety of ways in the planning of the event through team recruitment, sponsorship, publicity, logistics or entertainment. Fill out our interest form if you are wanting to serve as the DogFest chair or a committee member.
Are you a creative individual that likes to put together videos for fun presentations and demonstrations? Canine Companions routinely has a need for the creation of videos or slideshows of our wonderful puppies, raisers and graduate teams to show at outreach and community events. If you would like to share your creative abilities in this way, please complete the contact form.
