Pets and Active Retirement Living at The Lodge

Many independent living retirement communities just don’t allow pets like cats and dogs, but The Lodge at Magnolia Manor is different. We understand how your pet is a treasured and integral part of your household. That’s why we’re a pet-friendly independent senior living community that welcomes you, and your pets, to The Lodge here in Columbus, Georgia.

A Better Life with Beloved Pets

We’re such fans of pet companionship that we dedicated an article on our website to exploring the benefits of having pets. They provide unconditional love while providing health benefits, such as reducing stress, lowering blood pressure and helping keep seniors active.

Here at The Lodge, we’re just minutes from Columbus’s RiverWalk, which is considered a “furry-friendly” place to take a dog. Or, if you choose to stay on campus, our future site will have walking paths throughout the community for you, your friends and your pets to enjoy spending time outside. 

If you can’t imagine life in retirement without your pet, you’re not alone. A 2019 survey of seniors found that 82 percent of respondents said they wouldn’t consider moving to a retirement community unless their pets could come with them. And 86 percent of seniors who responded said they’d feel lonely without their pet. Seniors who move to a pet-free community face the agonizing choice of having to find a new home for their furry companion.

But you could avoid all that by moving to one of our future pet-approved homes here at The Lodge. We know that bringing your pets to live with you here means you’ll feel even more at home. 

If you have any questions about how we can make every member of your household feel at home here in Columbus, Georgia, please reach out to us so we can answer all your questions.
