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 $4,000.00 

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


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.

Nitro Needs a Furever Home!


This sweet boy really deserves his own family to love.  He has been here almost a year and is learning bad habits from the sanctuary cats—like hiding when a new person comes.


However, after a few visits, Nitro has gotten used to all our volunteers.  He really is a lover, and he really deserves his own home and family.


He gets along with other cats almost instantly, uses the litter box, is microchipped, neutered and current on vaccines. 


Please give Nitro a chance to show you he would be your perfect partner!
