Pets at Sunrise Communities

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. 
Our community pets are adopted from local shelters because they exhibit calm and friendly temperaments that are best suited for our residents. 

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.

Visit a Sunrise community near you for a tour and an introduction to our in-residence cat and dog.
