We would not exist without our volunteers. You can help save the lives of homeless animals by volunteering your time, or by opening your home to a foster animal.

Foster homes needed

Foster pet parents open their hearts and their homes to provide temporary shelter for our homeless cats and dogs.

Companions In Waiting is in URGENT need of foster homes. If you are interested in becoming a foster parent, please email us or call us at (650) 328-0474, or fill out our foster home application and return it today!
