Sponsor a Cat or Dog at Companion Connection

Our Sponsorship Program raises money for Companion Connection by connecting cats and dogs housed at our sanctuary with animal lovers like you! The best part is you can be a sponsor from anywhere - no matter where you live. Companion Connection provides a home to approximately 15+ cats and several dogs at any given time.† Many of these companion animals require special medical attention, are not completely socialized,† or are unlikely to be adopted due to other reasons.†

These companion animals may live out their lives at the sanctuary, if necessary, and we are dedicated to providing them the love and medical care they need.† By being a member of our Sponsorship Program, your donations help cover the costs of caring for these companion animals and the sanctuary they live in. Any amount will help.† If you are interested in sponsoring a Companion Connection animal, please contact us at .† And your donations are tax deductible!

Companion Connection needs your help to pay off the incurred medical bills for our sanctuary cats.† We still owe the credit card company about $7,500.00†

Can you help?† $5, $10, or whatever you can spare will help a lot if everyone pitches in and shares our need.


I have just found the best carrier covers!† I just got my Cat Cozy and it is very well made and fit my carrier purrfectly.†

They are made in Canada, where the winters get very cold and windy. In order to keep the cats warm and cozy when travelling to the vet or to a show, a good snug cat carrier cover is a necessity.† The Cat Cozy is designed to fit snuggly around the carrier to prevent wind from getting inside. Inside seams are finished securely to prevent fraying. It can be machine washed and dried. 


Order yours today -† They are available for a small, medium or large carrier.

Check out the different fabrics and sizes.† She even made me one for our not-so-frigid temperatures in Texas.† Complete with a file folder pocket!† I love it.† Go check these carrier covers out.† They are great!

Companion Connection does not take owner surrender animals; rather, we try to educate how the companion animal can remain in the family and provide guidance when and where we are able.


If you have lost your companion animal, contact the Animal Control with the Elgin Police Department, Bastrop County Animal Shelter or Austin Animal Center.†† Please note that Elgin, TX no longer has an animal shelter, only the Animal Control Officer working under the Elgin Police Department.† Strays picked up by Elgin Animal Control are taken to Bastrop County Animal Shelter on Cool River Drive.
