Calling all cat lovers! If you are ready to step up and help out some kitties in need, you are in luck. Our Companions is putting out the all-call for more cat volunteers. What does that entail, exactly? We need YOU to come spend time with our kitties at our Sanctuary in Ashford, CT. That’s right, we need people to volunteer in what is basically a kitty paradise.

At the Sanctuary, as with all our programs, we promise to always do the right thing for the animals in our care. We provide these deserving animals with a safe, home-like environment where they can become their best selves. And we truly couldn’t do it without our volunteers.

We need people who are ready to enrich the lives of our Sanctuary’s feline guests. Whether you want to throw down with some energizing interactive play, snuggle up to a senior kitty, or work on helping our shyest guest become more confident, we have cats here waiting for you. Are you ready to join the OC team?

Apply here to volunteer.

We Did It!

Thanks to your extraordinary outpouring of support and generosity we met our annual fund goal, and are entering 2017 in a position of financial strength. This is imperative because, in just a couple of months, we will embark upon a
one-million-dollar construction project that will double the number of housing for animals at our animal Sanctuary in Ashford, CT.

We are truly overwhelmed with gratitude and cannot wait to share with you how your support is saving and changing lives in the New Year. On behalf of the staff, volunteers, Board of Directors and the people and pets we serve, thank you!

Happy New Year!
