Senior Living Centers Across America Accept More Pets

5/5/2013
Location : Encinitas

At the Silverado in Encinitas, 25 miles north of San Diego, residents have miniature horses and for several months every year, a very young kangaroo, said Steve Winner, co-founder and chief of culture for the company's 23 centers in six states, including Illinois and Texas.

They've had a pot-bellied pig, chinchillas, guinea pigs and even a llama until he got too big, said Winner, who estimated that 20 percent of their new residents move in with pets.

When it's time to walk the dogs, a staff member might play "Who Let the Dogs Out" by Baha Men as a signal that it's time to put leashes on the dogs.
