A Pet Home Away from Home You Can Trust
Latham Centers Lifelong Pet Care offers a distinct opportunity for you to add new meaning and satisfaction to the life of your pet and to Latham’s residents with special needs.
We will offer your pet unconditional love and affection, personal care, structure and a new best friend as our caretakers learn, nurture and build trust with your cherished best friend.

  • Pre-arranged visits to a family member on Cape Cod and Southeastern Massachusetts, if requested
  • The option to have your pet certified as a Companion Animal to visit children with special needs at Latham School and adults at area nursing homes and rehabilitation centers.
  • Latham Dog Walking – Select Latham residents have been identified to render dog walking services. This vocational opportunity is a paid position. Funding for dog walking is derived from customers and additional program donations to Latham, as well as in-kind support from Latham’s program budget.
  • Latham Long-term Pet Care – Latham residents will care for pets based on custom instructions from just one weekend to months. Latham Centers offers in-house pet-sitting or pet-sitting at a Latham residence.
