The Pet Cottage is a small, local, mission-specific, non-profit animal sanctuary that serves at-risk populations in your community.
Pets who serve their companions and become homeless because of death, disability, or deployment.
Human companions who are dying or become unable to care for their pet because of aging or disability.
Military families who must give up their pets because of military deployment or veterans who need assistance with their pets.
Senior people looking for a pet to provide companionship and purpose to their lives.
The Pet Cottage is unique in its promises to the pet and to people. The Pet Cottage provides on-going support to all its fosters, adopters, volunteers, and their families, also known as "pack members". Keeping in touch and checking on our members is a commitment that sets The Pet Cottage apart.
What is unique about our mission:
Once a part of the pack, always a part of the pack. It is a promise for life.
Fosters are chosen carefully through home visits, background checks, and references.
Pets and fosters are checked in with regularly.
Medical needs paid for.
Peace of mind for people and their families who must relinquish their pets.
Hand-held support for senior pet to senior person.
Through home visits and reference checks to ensure the perfect pet-to-person match.
We provide lifelong guardianship through sanctuary residency, forever fosters or rehoming.
This campaign is designed to promote awareness among our senior population and active deployable and veteran military personnel in Palm Beach County, and to provide solutions to an ongoing problem that our community is facing.
The success of the The Pet Cottage is credited in large part to our sponsors who lend their name and financial support to the The Pet Cottage in exchange for valuable sponsorships benefits. But our efforts to solve this problem won’t reach their maximum effectiveness unless we have the backing of our entire community.
