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.

Archie was thin, matted, and covered in foxtails and fleas when he was picked up stray in Hollister. He also had painful leg and foot conditions. With CIW's help he's recovered from all of that, and living his best life with a mom who adores him!

When a longtime supporter of CIW passed away, we took in 11-year-old Taylor. She was shy and didn't like adoption fairs, but when a couple came to a fair asking about older cats, it turned out to be a perfect match. Now Taylor loves to sit on her dad's lap while he works at the computer.
