Pet Friendly Apartments in Your City From Rent.com

Overview

If your trusty tabby or terrier isn't welcome, it's a deal breaker. Rent.com makes it easy to find pet friendly apartments. Just search by pet policy for cats, dogs, or both. You can even contact the properties you like online for more details about their pet policies. Pet friendly apartments are a few clicks away on Rent.com.

Pet Friendly Apartments

We have listed a few protective guidelines and helpful tips that you should carefully consider before searching for apartment complexes that allow pets.

Check State Laws

Whichever state you are planning to move to will have its own rules and regulations on which animals are permitted within the state. Some states have strict rules about keeping certain exotic pets; owners of such pets will need to get a permit from the United States Department of Agriculture. You can also call your city hall and ask if there are any relevant laws about the kind of pets you have or may want to keep.

Vaccinations

Many landlords and apartment complexes will not allow any pets on the building premises without first seeing the required documentation from the owner. Make a trip to the vet and see that your pet is up-to-date on all its vaccinations. Make sure the vet gives you the appropriate records and permits that you can present to the landlord if asked.

Types of Pets

Dog Friendly Apartments

Many apartments have breed restrictions and will only allow certain breeds that are better suited to living in an apartment. Some apartments charge a pet fee or will ask you for a deposit. When you speak to the landlord or apartment manager, make sure you mention the breed of your dog. If you haven't bought a dog yet and are planning to do so, then it is advisable to research the breed before adopting or purchasing it.

Cat Friendly Apartments

Many landlords prefer the feline to the canine because they are quieter and cleaner pets. But before they can allow your pet into the building, they will typically ask to see your cat's veterinary records with all the core vaccinations and rabies shots administered.

Caged Pet and Aquarium Friendly Apartments

While most apartments allow birds as pets, a few have a strict policy against keeping them as pets because they can be quite noisy. A few apartments even have a policy about keeping aquariums. There might be a limit on the tank size, such as 20 or 30 gallons of water. A few apartments might allow rodents, lizards, snakes, guinea pigs, or hedgehogs. Once again, you will need to check with the landlord and apartment policies before moving into the apartment.

If your landlord allows you to keep pets, make sure this is added as an addendum to your lease so that your interests are well protected. Find out how many pets you are allowed to keep because most apartments might only allow one or two pets per apartment.

Rent.com understands what your pets mean to you, and that is why we have listed several apartments that will suit you, your family, and your pets.
