Hoffman Auto Group is proud to be the sponsor of Our Companions’ pet adoption events. They focus on local charities, with an emphasis on bettering the communities in which we work and live. When Israel Hoffman founded Hoffman Auto Group nearly 100 years ago, he and later his son Burton left behind a legacy of trust, community and integrity. Today, Jeffrey S. Hoffman, I. Bradley Hoffman, and Matthew S. Hoffman carry on those traditions. To learn about Hoffman Auto Group’s contributions to the community, visit: http://www.hoffmanauto.com/hoffman-contributions.htm 


Founded ten years ago, Our Companions Animal Rescue’s central governing principle is to do the right thing for animals regardless of the challenge or the cost. Our Companions operates its Valerie Friedman Program Center in Manchester and a 43 acres Animal Sanctuary in Ashford, CT.
