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.

Little Sofi (was Dally) was found loose in a parking lot near a highway. Signs were posted but no owner could be found, and CIW was asked to take her in. Now Sofi has a safe home with three kitten buddies!

Olivia and Ricky were born as Central Valley farm kittens and came to CIW to find their home. It look some waiting indeed, but the right family met them at a fair and now they're living happily ever after.
