Gulf Coast Chapter

South Central Region

Formed in 2018, the Gulf Coast Chapter is comprised of volunteers, puppy raisers and graduate teams serving Houston and the surrounding areas. Gulf Coast Chapter members actively support Canine Companions through community awareness, outreach activities and fundraising. We are positioned to do great things for Canine Companions and the clients the organization serves in Texas! Join us if you would like to volunteer your time and talents to training Exceptional Dogs for Exceptional People®.

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 Gulf Coast Chapter is an extension of the South Central 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. Click here if you are interested in working with our chapter. We’d love to meet you!

Canine Companions representatives are available to present to your group or have an outreach booth at your event. Please complete a request form and a Gulf Coast Chapter volunteer will respond.
