Forever Home Manual

Our Companions is offering you the Forever Home Manual as a guide to help you find a forever home for your pet. Placing an animal using the procedures recommended in this manual takes time, but your dog or cat has been a good and faithful companion to you. He/she deserves the best new home you can find. You will sleep better knowing that your pet is happy, healthy and safe in their new home.

Finding a New Home for Cats

Our Companions does not operate a traditional shelter, but we do have a successful cat placement program! We can help you to re-home your pet cat or the friendly stray cat you rescued. Our program requires that you provide a safe home for the cat(s) until we are able to find a new home. We are able to accommodate a limited number of cat guests at our Ashford Sanctuary, but you need to be signed up for this program first to become eligible.

You can speed up the process by reading this information and providing us with the necessary paperwork.
