Animal Rescue & Adoption

About Us

Companions in Waiting began in 2003, and was incorporated as a 501(c)3 California non-profit corporation in 2007. Our mission is:

To prepare animals to become life-long members of a family.
To support companion animals and their owners through educational materials, individual behavioral problem solving, workshops and community activities.
To work with local county animal services to help those animals in their care that need longer term specialized care than county facilities can provide.

Companions In Waiting works to help dogs, cats, kittens, and puppies become welcomed members of a family. Each animal goes through a program of ''in home'' socialization, animal good manners, beginning obedience training and other therapies designed especially for them that will nurture their physical and mental well-being while in our care.

Potential adopters will be given guides to support, develop and enhance their relationship with the new member of the family. Follow-up communication will increase the likelihood that these companion animals will stay in a stable, loving home their entire lives.

Companions In Waiting is a California corporation for charitable and educational purposes. The corporation has tax-exemption status under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. Your donations to Companions in Waiting are tax-deductible.
