Dog Gone ... Landlords

Have you ever had to give up your beloved pet because you needed to rent an apartment or home and found out that landlords don't allow pets? Are you frustrated at trying to find a decent rental unit that accepts pets ... and that also charges a reasonable rent?

A Couple of Tips for Responsible Pet Owners Seeking Rental Housing

  • Show that you are a responsible pet owner by having proof of licensing, neutering, necessary vaccinations, obedience school or anything else that helps make your case.
  • Have references the from previous landlords that specifically mention your pet .
  • Offer to pay an additional pet deposit or small monthly charge
  • For more tips, see our members' Pet Problems page.

      Ferrets and skunks are a couple of the exotic animals that are sometimes kept as pets.
