Can I Bring My Dog?

Can I Bring My Dog?

The Answer Is Yes! And Your Cat! Or Your Bird!

One of the most common questions I get asked is whether or not dogs are welcome in assisted living facilities. The answer is YES! Most locations allow pets and welcome them as members of the community. Oftentimes, a pet fee will be required upon move-in. Some assisted living communities will only allow cats, while others will allow cats and dogs (usually with a weight limit). In most communities, residents must be able to completely care for their pets although quite a few have added dog care services.

Here are just a few of our favorite assisted living pets!
