Companion Connection


What you can do to help Companion Connection:

1) Companion Connection depends on donations to feed, house and provide medical care for all the animals at the sanctuary.  Set up iGive today so that every purchase you make at many, many stores benefits Companion Connection.

2) We are also in need of volunteers to help keep the village clean and the furbabies socialized.  If you can help us in any way, we would love to hear from you.

3) Our Sponsorship Program raises money for Companion Connection by connecting companion animals 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 12+ 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!







"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated...

I hold that, the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of man." -Mahatma Gandhi-

We are a non profit

Companion Connection needs your help! 

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

Sanctuary cats are seniors and require special medications and diet.  Thank you!

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 your local County Animal Control or local Animal Shelters.  Also, see our My Companion in Lost page.
