At Sunrise, we love animals and appreciate the importance of pets in people’s lives. You are welcome to bring your own pet that you care for yourself, and every Sunrise community has a resident cat or dog. When you walk into a Sunrise community, you are often greeted by a sweet and obedient dog or you may spot the community cat curled up in its favorite resident’s lap. These pets live at the community full-time and are truly part of our Sunrise family. In fact, many of our communities are home to senior pets, who we've adopted from local animal shelters.


Meet Our Pets

Our Pet Philosophy

Community pets provide companionship, sense of purpose, social engagement, and opportunities to remain active. We all help take care of the community pets, and encourage you to engage with your community’s pet as much or as little as you like through feeding, walking, and other daily care. If you don’t love pets, that’s okay, too—interactions are carefully managed by Sunrise team members.

While all pets need homes, our communities typically turn first to animal rescue organizations to explore pet options, as these are pets that exhibit calm and friendly temperaments that are best suited for our residents. We are proud to partner with local organizations to find our furry friends forever homes!

Each Sunrise community has a resident cat and dog, and you are welcome to bring your own furry friends with you when you move in.
