Adoption fairs are back!
We are happy to announce that after more than two years, CIW is holding adoption fairs again. Join us at Kibbles & Gifts in Half Moon Bay and meet your new best friend!
There are no fairs scheduled at this time. If you're interested in meeting a CIW cat or dog, please email us, or call us at 650-328-0474.
Happy Holidays! No adoption fairs are held between mid-December and the end of January. Fairs resume in February.
2024 is almost here! Time get your Companions calendar.
Meet some of the cats and dogs adopted from Companions in Waiting in the pages of our 2024 calendar. For a donation of just $22 we'll ship one of these calendars directly to you; call us at 650-328-0474 to get yours. Your donation helps us care for and find forever homes for more animals, and our calendar makes a great gift!

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.
Munica is blind and relies on Tinkerbell to guide her; these 8-year-old sisters were rescued from terrible conditions. Now they have a great new Mom and love to go for walks and car rides.
Hollister Animal Care & Control asked CIW to help these tiny kittens, who were too young for the shelter. We took them in and soon heard from a family whose cat, adopted from CIW 15 years ago, had passed away. Smudge and Casandra were too young for adoption but this family waited patiently and are now the happy home for these siblings.
