The Northern Ohio Chapter of Canine Companions for Independence is made up of Puppy Raisers, Graduates, and Volunteers who have a passion for seeing exceptional service dogs go to exceptional people! With members from the Toledo area to the Pennsylvania border, we truly span all of Northern Ohio! We meet quarterly for chapter meetings, but have weekly events between training days and demonstrations. We are a friendly group who loves helping and encouraging each other in all things. If you are new our chapter we would love to welcome you to our Northern Ohio family!
What’s a Chapter?
If you’re looking for deeper engagement as a Canine Companions volunteer, we encourage you to get involved with our chapter. The Northern Ohio Chapter is an extension of the North Central Region. 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!
