New arrivals and featured pets
The phone rang. It is kitten season now. Five beautiful kittens were found with their Mom at an apartment complex. Could CIW help them? In between the time we received the call and the time the kittens arrived, the 2 boys and their mom found homes. The 3 beautiful girls came to us. Claire, Hazel and Matilda are very sweet, social kittens. Hazel is the most outgoing. Claire is the bravest. Matilda isn't sure if she wants to be brave or shy but she gains confidence from her best friend Ollie. They are healthy girls, spayed, micro-chipped and have tested negative for fiv/felv. They are age appropriatelly current with their vaccinations. Now all they need is to find their "forever" families. Is that your family?
Five year old Brownie was found wandering in a Half Moon Bay residential neighborhood. He had no tags or microchip and although his picture and description were circulated, no one came looking for this cute little guy. He is a little dynamo who really wants to find a family where he can be chief. He does well when he is the only dog. He is now neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated. He has also done well with children. He is also not an early morning little boy. If you are not an early morning person, Brownie is looking for you!

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 email@example.com.
