Providing free, temporary foster care placement and support services, specifically for the pets of those seeking treatment for alcohol and substance use disorders.
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

Give the pet a loving, caring home while his or her owner is in treatment.
Once the owner is ready, you'll be able to return the pet to his or her loving home.

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.
