1000 Second Chances by Companah


We are supporting the adoption of older pets by sponsoring an adult or rescued pet. For each family who chooses to have Companah handle the private cremation of their pet, we will donate toward the adoption fee. We believe that we will be able to participate in the adoption of 1000 pets that may not otherwise be adopted – thus giving 1000 second chances.


Companah works with families and service providers at the end of a companion’s life, and we do everything we can to make that time easier and as graceful as it can be. However, we also want to be a part of the story of a family bringing a new companion into their household. Specifically, we want to help promote the adoption of adult and rescue pets.

When considering the adoption of a pet, the majority of people first (and sometimes only) consider young dogs and cats. Of course, there is nothing wrong with adopting a puppy or kitten – but, we would like to draw attention to older and senior pets that are at risk of never finding a new home.

There are many reasons to consider giving an adult pet a second chance at a life:

  • Many older animals were once owned and loved by someone. For whatever reason, they were given up and abandoned in a shelter and are in need of a home. Just like puppies and kittens, they make loyal and loving companions.
  • Older cats are usually liter box trained and dogs are typically house trained and understand at least basic commands
  • Senior pets may be less energetic and can be great for first time owners.
“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened. ” – Anatole France
