Exactly. Some are called "Long Term Care" programs. For a fee (to cover expected years of medical care, etc.), you can secure a place for your furry friend in a facility that will provide a safe, secure home for him/her when you are gone. Friends of Cats in El Cajon, CA has a nice one. There are not nearly as many of these facilities as there are adoption/rescue centers, but they do exist.

What the heck is a retirement home? Do you mean a place to go when I die?
