Who We Are

Founded in 2002, Our Companions Animal Rescue is a Connecticut-based nonprofit organization that goes to extraordinary lengths to help animals in need today, while working to prevent animals from becoming homeless tomorrow.

We offer a variety of Adoption Services to meet the needs of homeless pets in Connecticut. We know that a proper home exists for most animals- it just takes patience, resources and a commitment to find it.  Our Companions offers virtual adoption programs so pets can stay in their original homes while we search for a new family, adoption at the Ashford Sanctuary and regular adoption days at the Valerie Friedman Program Center centrally located in Manchester, CT.

In addition to adoption services, we are also involved in political advocacy, broad spay/neuter efforts and humane education and training. It’s a long-term, comprehensive approach to ending pet homelessness and suffering.
