We learned of the PET COTTAGE through FaceBook and It turned out to be a gift from heaven.
Our beloved cat of 21 years,HONEYPUSS went over the rainbow 3years ago.We decided that we were ready to adopt.As Seniors ourselves,we wanted a Senior cat. The time,patience,and caring that Wendy demonstrated in matching the pet with the proper guardians was OUTSTANDING. Three months ago SALLY came into our home and has brightened our lives in so many ways. Not only that,but Wendy and her team of volunteers have followed up with phone calls,visits ,food and toys. We are blessed to be part of this dedicated,loving,sincere extended family.

The Pet Cottage provides exceptional care and love for pets for the rest of their lives. What better peace of mind and heart could you want for your fur baby when you can no longer care for them.

This is such an amazing nonprofit. Not only does the Pack lovingly care for their elderly animals but they keep in touch with those animals they have placed in loving homes. They keep everyone updated with daily posts and photos, especially the most frail and fragile who are looked after by Wendy at home.

I have not had personally a experience with the Pet Cottage. A friend of mine introduced me to them and I have been following them for a long time. One of my very, very favorite was Charlie Brown. The people at the at the Pet Cottage took such great care of him until he crossed the Rainbow Bridge. I am so glad they exist. If I am ever in need of that service there is only one place I would want my pets to be. THE PET COTTAGE.

Wendy and her pack doing a wonderful job taking the very best care of the animals. They always go to the vet to see if there are different treatment options. They always keep everyone informed as to the status of the animals in their care. They are quick to respond to all comments and questions. This organization has a pure heart for the animals and the people they interact with.

I became familiar with The Pet Cottage over 3 years ago. I fell in love with their mission the first time I heard it! They find homes for pets who have lost their loved ones through death, disability or deployment. Most of their pets are senior pets and they have a huge “pack” of people who support and volunteer for them regularly taking in these senior pets whether it’s fostering or forever. Wendy, the founder, is the kindest soul you’d ever meet who truly wants to give these pets a second chance at life and love. I highly recommend the Pet Cottage as a non-profit organization!

Pet Cottage performs a wonderful and compassionate service for our community and our companion animals.
They fill a need in a unique way.
Many animals are surrendered when their owners pass away, become incapacitated or homeless.
Pet Cottage steps up to the plate to Rescue these animals and try to place them with loving fosters or homes.
Thank You Pet Cottage for All You Do for the Animals❤️❤️

I love that they take care of senior pups, cats etc. So many people ignore the elder ones and we get to see them every day in a video or post whether at their home with Wendy or with the Vet to see that they are doing okay

I heard about the pet cottage on Facebook. Two beautiful babies appeared and the post read their owner had passed away and they needed to find a new home.
I had recently lost my beautiful Cocker Spaniel and thought I would never get another dog . After speaking to Wendy at the pet cottage my husband and I decided we would go meet these doggies. Well it was love at first sight on our part and theirs. They have been a part of our lives for 8 months now and just are so happy. They are both seniors at 11 years old but they still have a lot of energy and love to give. Thanks to the pet cottage and the amazing job they do placing mostly senior dogs who have lost their owners due to death, deployment, or a person being disabled.

The Pet Cottage is unique in that they make a promise to the pet that they'll never be homeless again, so they are followed for life. While serving these mostly senior pets, though, they simultaneously serve the senior guardians with whom they are placed. The desire for companionship and feeling of being needed has been amplified during the pandemic, and The Pet Cottage has been a lifesaver for both pets and members of our senior community.

My experience with The Pet Cottage is completely through the internet. Their page came up on my laptop one day as I was scrolling. I do love pets more than people and I was hooked. The work that Wendy, the guardians and the volunteers do is off the charts. The pets and their humans are their top priority along with meeting their wishes. The Pet Cottage does rely on donations and this is one of the best of the best to donate to. If I was a pet I pray and wish that The Pet Cottage will accept me when my day comes . . . . the love and care is endless and selfless.

The Pet Cottage Sanctuary is located in Florida and I live in Ohio. I am hundreds of miles away, but I can feel the love and care that are given to these dogs and cats. Ms. Wendy does live videos twice a day to let us see the antics of these silly precious animals! She is a Godsend to the animals in her care.

I just love The Pet Cottage. I have been following them on Facebook now for about 3 months. I love what they do. It is about giving homes to dogs and cats who have lost their humans due to death, disabilities, health issues or deployment. They make sure the pet is taken care of for the rest of their lives. They have guardians who take care of some of these pets and there is also Wendy The Pet Cottage matriarch who also takes care of the more needy pets that might have greater issues to deal with. Wendy makes sure that every pet is taken care of medically and provides the food or whatever else is needed to the Guardians when needed. It is such a caring nonprofit organization but it is also so needed to help our seniors who love their animals and want to make sure they are taken care of when they no longer can provide for their furbabies due to unforeseen circumstances. I plan to start donating to The Pet Cottage myself very soon so I can feel like I am helping in some way to keep this wonderful organization available. I don't live in Jupiter Florida myself but I am such a fan I want to help in some way. I look forward everyday to the videos Wendy posts of the pets and tells everyone about what is happening or is going to happen that day pertaining to them. I just love The Pet Cottage...everyone should follow this wonderful nonprofit organization! It will make your heart sing!!

I’ve known Wendy Derhak for many years and learned about her mission early on. She has a passion for helping animals when they’ve lost their owners. I’ve fostered 3 animals so far who have lost their owners.

The Pet Cottage makes sure the pets have everything they need with their fosters. It’s so rewarding knowing these animals have a forever home where they can live out their lives.

The Pet Cottage makes the connection between the Pet and the foster. Wendy’s dedication is never ending.

My name is Shari and I have been a volunteer at The Pet Cottage for three years. I truly believe in Wendy's mission. She is a guardian angel to both the animals that she saves and to their humans. She works endlessly to make sure that the dogs and cats that she fosters find the most suitable, safe new homes. This is wonderful because their human who can no longer take care of their animal knows that they will not have to worry about their pet. This is the peace of mind they will have with Wendy. My dog passed away last year and after a period of mourning I knew that I wanted another dog. I also knew that I wanted to get one through The Pet Cottage. I am now a proud mom to a beautiful senior dog named Henry.

I'm divorced, just bought a new home, have my children and grandchildren nearby, but I still felt like I was missing something. That something was a pet - to keep me company and for protection as I live by myself. A friend at work found The Pet Cottage on line and showed me a picture of a schnauzer. I've had schnauzers before, and I knew that this was what I was waiting for. Sophie came into my life. The Pet Cottage was amazing, asking me all kinds of questions and they visit the home and meet the person before ever letting one of their babies go - they are very thorough and wonderful to work with. Sophie is 14 years old, I've had her for about six months, absolutely love her - we're definitely a team! I can't thank The Pet Cottage enough for the awesome work that they do, putting their hearts and souls into taking in older animals so that they can have a good life with whatever time they have left. It's a wonderful, inspiring concept and Wendy and staff are by far the best!!

I love the mission of The Pet Cottage, to rehome pets due to deceased, disabled or deployed owners. It's what made me want to offer my photographic skills to help out. As I photographed many of the dogs I could see how well cared and loved they all are. I would have no reservation recommending The Pet Cottage as a place to help out with pets once the owners are no longer capable of taking care of them.

Pet Cottage has an incredible mission and one that is increasingly important as the population ages. Wendy is extremely knowledgeable and has an enormous heart for seniors both people and animal varieties. I started volunteering in the summer and have recently increased my involvement and hours to support this awesome cause. For me personally I love animals and working with seniors so it is a perfect blend of both.

You learn the most and gain the most by being involved. The Pet Cottage is an absolutely wonderful way to strengthen your soul, your faith in the human family. The Pet Cottage demonstrates how together we can make such a fantastic difference. Supporting each other, and making sure we have someone to love is of paramount importance. It doesn't matter if he/she walks on two feet or four! Everyone wants to be held and told, "I love you!"

Taking care of our senior people and animal population really is covering so many bases. I have learned so many things! Yappy Hours are wonderful! Senior Pets are just as wonderful if not more wonderful than peeing puppies. Puppy & Cat conversations work very well, just as well as 'the grandchildren'! The Pet Cottage, Inc is doing a wonderful job for a very special segment of our population. I believe the Pet Cottage is GREAT! We adopted Boots, this gorgeous feline from The Pet Cottage!

I have been with the Pet Cottage for over 3 years as a volunteer “The Furry Godmother” as I am affectionately called. This organization is absolutely wonderful with the pets and they always find loving compassionate homes for the animals. The animals are never forgotten. When they join the Pet Cottage they will be loved forever. I also help walk the dogs which I truly enjoy.!Wendy the founder is an incredible person who loves what she does and put her whole self into the animals and their fosters.

Wendy and Pet Cottage have a wonderful mission-helping place pets for deployment, disability or death and helping wonderful pets who are displaced through no circumstances of their own. They helped my mother find a new cat after her beloved kitty died. And when my mother passed away, they rehomed her new cat. They keep up with the animals for life, and I want more people to know how special they are and how much they care about their four legged charges. We should all support this wonderful mission.

I have witnessed Wendy and The Pet Cottage take great care of pets that have lost their loved ones to death, deployment and disability. The pets couldn’t be in better care than here.

When a dog or cat’s owner can no longer care for them due to death, disability, or deployment, the Pet Cottage takes wonderful care of them until they can find them another loving home. I know of a few people who were refusing to go into hospice care because they didn’t want to leave their pet-until Wendy from The Pet Cottage came along and they saw how caring and wonderful she was with their pet. At the darkest time of their lives, Wendy is a ray of sunshine and hope!
