It will provide evidence of your PayPal payments and greatly assist us with our efforts to retrieve CIW's funds to help our furry friends. Thank you!
This is Mara, our sweet little Mom dog who came to us pregnant and gave us three beautiful puppies. Mara has a mature cataract and blindness in one eye; she has another cataract growing in the other eye. Mara is between three and four years old, and if these cataracts are not corrected, she will be blind in less than a year. She needs cataract surgery before she's ready for adoption. The surgery costs about $4000, but with the help of the Palo Alto Humane Society, we are able to get her the surgery for $2500. We are relying on donors to help meet that expense. We'll make sure Mara gets the surgery so she can find a great family. If you can help us, and Mara, with a donation of any size, please donate to Mara's surgery now via YouCaring.com, or call us at 650-328-0474. Many thanks from all of us at Companions in Waiting!
If you have donated to Mara's surgical costs through Razoo, we thank you so much for your generosity. Your donation has been received and allocated to Mara's surgery. Switching to YouCaring.com will allow us to put even more toward her surgey thanks to lower payment processing fees.

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.
Ziggy was one of two dogs surrendered by an owner who couldn't care for them. While one dog found a home quickly, Ziggy had to wait to find the perfect family. Patience paid off and his new mom says "it feels like he's always been here."
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!
