CIW Founder Receives Jefferson Award

Companions in Waiting founder Jo Hamilton was honored in February of 2011 to receive a local Jefferson Award for her work with CIW. CBS San Francisco has this story and video about the award.

The Jefferson Awards website has this to say about local award winners:

The local winners are grassroots "Unsung Heroes" — ordinary individuals who are performing extraordinary deeds.

Jo is grateful for this award and hopes the recognition will help bring even more forever families to the homeless animals of the bay area.
