* The San Lorenzo orphanage in ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfPussInBoots'': Señora Zapata might seem strict and bossy, but she genuinely wants what's best for the kids, and Dulcinea is there to soften her sharp edges. Taken to extremes in "Lost and Foundlings": the first time someone actually wants to adopt one of the orphans, Zapata and Duclinea are in tears at the thought of losing one of them, while doing a hilariously bad job of showing a brave face for the sake of the children. [[spoiler: None of them want to leave either, and in the end the prospective parent moves into the orphanage!]]

* In ''Fanfic/DisneyHighSchool,'' several characters (Disney/{{Aladdin}}, [[Disney/{{Tangled}} Flynn]], Disney/PeterPan) live at the Goob Home for Lost Boys, run by [[MeetTheRobinsons Cornelius and Franny Robinson]]. It hasn't been seen on-page yet, but they're dishing out money for their kids to attend a fancy private school, so it's clearly a nice place.

* ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'', but with imaginary friends whose owners have grown-up and left them. It has a surprisingly very very very small staff for such a one-of-a-kind place, but everyone there generally enjoys their stay.
** Mr. Harriman and Mrs. Foster are essentially administrators. Many of the orphaned friends do a lot of work to keep the place running, though Frankie has to take up the slack.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTales'', Patch used to live in one of those before being adopted, and she seems to have pretty fond memories of the place, as she still has friends there and loves to help other orphan ponies.

* ''Series/MillionYenWomen'' deconstructs the idea from the orphan's point of view. [[spoiler:Midori]] was abandonned by her parents at a young age. She ended up in an orphanage run by a couple who made it a rule to be called "mom" and "dad" by their wards and asked them to treat each other as sibilings. [[spoiler:Midori]] never liked the setup, considers it to have been an abnormal upbringing and wanred to get out as fast as she could. The only other orphan she considered anything close to an actual relative was an older boy who was asked to show her around upon her arrival.

* [[Fanfic/SkyholdAcademyYearbook Skyhold Academy]], a BoardingSchool in [[Franchise/DragonAge Thedas]], is actually something very much like this, but they keep it secret from most people. The students who board there during the school year are either orphans or come from abusive backgrounds, and the school is on a mission to rescue them and give them a safe place to grow up.



* The orphanage in ''Disney/MeetTheRobinsons'' where Lewis and Goob grow up appears to be one of these, complete with kindly matron Mildred. Interestingly, the DVD commentary says that Mildred is careful to not coddle the children ''too'' much since they need to be able to leave when adopted without emotional hang-ups. The biggest problem at Lewis's orphanage is, well, [[ReluctantMadScientist Lewis himself]], though he [[CharacterDevelopment gets better]].
