New arrivals and featured pets
Daisie was with a family and everything was fine but then circumstances changed. The family felt that Daisie deserved to have a family that had more time for her so she came to CIW. Daisie is a very sweet and gentle 2 1/2 year old little girl. She is spayed, micro-chipped and is current with her vaccinations. She is very good in the house, with other dogs and with children. She still has lots of puppy in her and loves to play. She sleeps in her crate at night. She really wants to please her person. Is your family looking for a little charmer to join your family? Is yours the family Daisie has been waiting for?
These beautiful kittens were rescued from a ranch barn in Half Moon Bay. Their Mom took very good care of them but we wanted to give them a chance at a better life than being barn cats. Barn cats have to survive raccoons, wild cats, coyotes, hawks and other predators. The 3 girls and their brother have tested negative for felv/fiv and are now spayed/neutered, current with their vaccinations and are micro-chipped. These sweet, friendly wonderful kittens are ready to find a family that think they are just the perfect pair of kittens to join their family. Is that your family?

Our Senior Citizen-Senior Pet Program
So many seniors want and need a companion animal, but worry about managing the costs and care. What if veterinary bills are too high? What if the animal has too much energy? What if circumstances change and it becomes too difficult to care for the adopted pet?
CIW understands these concerns and wants to help! Our Senior Citizen – Senior Pet Companionship Program matches qualifying seniors with loving senior pets so both can enjoy the warmth, companionship, and many emotional and health benefits associated with this special kind of friendship. The program assists with veterinary expenses (up to $500 per year) and matches seniors with wonderful pets who share their energy level, possess wisdom and grace, and bring lots of warmth and love into a home. All CIW animals have a loving place to return to if circumstances should change after an adoption, so seniors can be assured of the lifelong welfare of their adopted pet. If you are a qualifying senior (60 years or older, can document a financial hardship, and do not currently own more than one other pet) and would like to apply for this program, please contact Jo Hamilton at 650-328-0474 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
