We understand the support, companionship, and love pets bring to our lives. That’s why we created this temporary foster placement service, to ensure your pets are taken care of while you get the help you need. Then, upon returning from treatment, you and your pet will be happily reunited once again, with an additional layer of recovery coach support to help during your transition.

*All pets are subject to an interview before fostering

I was doing really well and then, unfortunately, relapsed on alcohol. Robyn and Jimmy took my Penny Lane in while I both entered detox and went through the moving process. I received so many pictures and updates and knew my girl was safe! Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

I cannot express how thankful I am for Bubbie's Place. When I relapsed on alcohol and entered a treatment program for several months, Bubbie's Place took in sweet Finnegan and placed him in the hands of a loving home. It was a huge relief to not worry about the safety and comfort of my pup while I was getting help. Finn thrived while I was in treatment. What a blessing to know that as I was taking time to heal, Finn was enjoying life just as a puppy should! This is a wonderful organization and I tell everyone I meet about how Bubbie's Place was a lifesaver in my time of crisis. I have so much gratitude for Bubbie's Place and do not know what I would have done had they not been there to help. The same spirit in which pets bring support, companionship, and love is what I felt when I reached out to Bubbie's Place.
