Valley of the Sun Chapter

Southwest Region

Formed in 2002, the Valley of the Sun Chapter is a dynamic volunteer chapter of Canine Companions for Independence. Comprised of Canine Companions graduate teams, puppy raisers, golf supporters and DogFest supporters, we proudly serve the greater Phoenix area including Tucson and surrounding areas. Valley of the Sun chapter members actively support Canine Companions by participating in community awareness programs and fundraising.

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 Valley of the Sun Volunteer Chapter is an extension of the Southwest 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!
