About Constant Companions

When caring for a pet becomes physically challenging for seniors, veterans, and others, our Constant Companions program offers in-home assistance.

These volunteers:

    • walk the dog
    • clean the litter box
    • provide a ride to the vet or groomer
    • administer the pet’s medication
    • other tasks needed to ensure the pet’s well-being

Constant Companions ensures that these animals are cared for and can safely stay at home, exactly where their people need them. If you’re interested in having a Constant Companions volunteer help you, please use the button below to contact us or call Barb Kohley at (847) 697-2880 ext. 34.

Be A Constant Companions Volunteer

By helping people care for their pet, you’ll ensure these animals remain the Constant Companions their people need them to be. As a Constant Companions volunteer, you’ll:

    • visit the home of your assigned pet as needed
    • perform basic care such as cleaning the litter box or walking the dog
    • engage with the person to help keep him/her company and assess any greater needs

Constant Companions volunteers help people, and their pets stay healthy, happy, and together. If you’re interested in becoming a Constant Companions volunteer, please use the button below to contact us or call Barb Kohley at (847) 697-2880 ext. 34.

Success Story:

Ralph was having a rough year.

Between covid, a heart procedure, and a lung infection, April Ralph, who goes by Butch, had spent as much time in the hospital as out. And then his beloved support cat, Shaman, died.

“We’re troopers. We keep going,” said Micki, Butch’s sister, who has helped take care of him for years. In addition to his health conditions, Butch has had cognitive issues since experiencing asthma-related oxygen deprivation as a child.
