Success Stories

These are just a tiny sample of the cats and dogs — more than 350 in all — that have found new homes with the help of Companions in Waiting.

When Maggie tragically lost both her human mom and dad in less than a month, CIW helped find her a home while a local angel took care of her. Now she has a little dog sister and her new family says, "she fits perfectly!"

Bow was one of three tiny siblings raised in a CIW foster home. Bow and his little sister Esmie now live together in the big city!
