Each property is different and has its own animal policy. The posted rules generally apply to typical household animals like dogs or cats. Some properties only allow dogs, small dogs, dogs under 50 lbs., cats only, etc. The details of the animal policy for each specific property are listed in the ad. The posted fees, deposits, and pet rents apply to dogs and cats if they are allowed. The standard fees are per animal and include an animal deposit of 20% of one month's rent (1/2 refundable / 1/2 non-refundable) along with $45/month in pet rent. (See fees for other types of animals below)

Additional Fees for Dogs and Cats under 12 months: For puppies and kittens less than 12 months old, there is a non-refundable fee of $100 and a monthly charge of $10/month until the pet reaches 12 months of age.

  • These are in addition to the standard pet fees

  • Once the pet is 12 months old, the $10/month fee will stop and only standard pet fees will apply
