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 Capital Chapter Volunteer Chapter is an extension of the Northeast 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!
