With nearly 40 years experience as a volunteer, board member, grants writer and social worker, I am not easily impressed. I have been volunteering with Our Companions for 3 years and their ability to maximize resources by using volunteers is amazing! The leadership gets an A+ from me on recruiting, training, supporting and recognizing volunteers and making every donated dollar work as hard as possible.

I was ecstatic to realize I could make a donation through The United Way to a non -profit animal rescue. Although I am a 5 year volunteer of the Newington Humane Society over the years I have made donations to Our Campanions. There are so many organizations. that need donations and it is very important to support the non-profit organzations. I am proud to say that the compnay I work for matches my donations and every little bit helps.. Food for thought look to adapt.

I have volunteered with Our Companions for the past 5 years and it has been the BEST experience!! Their commitment to the welfare of the animals of the state of CT is par none! My contribution has been in the area of positive dog training, assisting with calls from people needing assistance (OC helpline), and rehoming dogs. I LOVE what I do and the support of all the OC staff!
