Methodology

We looked at all multifamily apartment complexes in Memphis with active listings on ApartmentGuide.com and rent.com and rated them on the number of pet-related businesses and parks within a half-mile radius. We used an exponentially decreasing scale based on distance from the apartment. For instance, a veterinarian across the street would score higher than one a quarter-mile away. Our establishment counts come from commercially available business listings and may not reflect recent openings and closures.
