Companion Pets in Crisis (CPiC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in Phoenix, Arizona.  We provide emergency response services to first responders and Fire Departments in the valley with the intention of keeping pets and their families together in times of crisis.  

CPiC is the ONLY boots on the ground type of organization resource to our local Fire Departments and The Red Cross to assist with 9-1-1 and crisis calls involving pets. 

Lisa Martin, the founder of CPiC, started our organization in 2015 when she was volunteering for the Phoenix Fire Department as a crisis responder and realized that by providing these  important services CPiC offers to our communities, anxiety and stress can be eased for both family and their pets.
