"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

organization.  Please make a tax deductible donation  today!

What you can do to help:

Companion Connection depends on donations to feed, house and provide medical care for all the animals at the sanctuary.  Donations may be monetary or in the form of litter or food.  Please see our wish list for more ideas.  We are also in need of volunteers to help keep the sanctuary clean and the dogs socialized and exercised.  If you can help us in any way, we would love to hear from you.  

Dutch was happily playing with a gorgeous and very large Great Pyrenees one afternoon.  Unfortunately, they were playing along Hwy 290 in Elgin!  Dutch was hit by a car and was laying on the side of the road when his Good Samaritan came up on the scene and stopped to help him.   Another person stopped and picked up the Great Pyrenees so we are uncertain whether that dog was returned to its home or found a new one. 

Dutch was taken to Elgin Family Pet Center (EFPC) where they detected a microchip and called the owner.  But Dutch’s injuries were too serious and were going to be so expensive to undertake that the young owner signed over Dutch to the Good Samaritan that took him to EFPC for care.

Dutch’s lower jaw was broken in the center; a clean break that required wiring the two sides back together.  And he underwent considerable tissue repair to the mouth as well. 


Even through all of this, Dutch is a very loving and joyful young boy (born approx. 4/2017).  He has completely healed and is doing very well. He is very smart, learning to sit and down while he's been healing here.
