Thank you for considering pet adoption! There are three crucial steps to every successful adoption:
Step 1: Meet the animals
Find your new best friend on this website:
Or in person at one of our adoption fairs, which are held regularly in Half Moon Bay and Menlo Park.
Step 2: Know our policies
Someone caught your eye? Learn about our adoption process so you'll know what to expect when adopting from Companions in Waiting.
Step 3: Apply to adopt
We are thrilled that you are thinking of adopting a homeless pet! Perhaps you've already seen our adoptable animals on the adoptable cats or adoptable dogs page, or met them at one of our adoption fairs, and you're applying to adopt a specific animal. Even if you haven't, you can fill out a cat or dog adoption application, and we'll contact you about making the perfect match.
Applications to adopt:
For the health and safety of our volunteers and adopters, and in compliance with California's shelter-in-place order, our upcoming fairs are cancelled until further notice. If you're interested in meeting a CIW animal, please email us, or call us at 650-328-0474.
