Pets brighten up our days and are great cuddle buddies. They mean a lot to you and are a part of your family! Finding an apartment when you have a bet can be a little bit more difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. We wanted to share tips for how to find the perfect apartment for you and your four-legged friends:
Do the Research: You may find an apartment you absolutely love, but they don’t allow pets or the type of pet you have. Prior to your apartment hunt, do a quick online search for “pet-friendly apartment” or “pet-friendly rental” in the Blacksburg area.
Honesty is Best: Don’t try to sneak your pet into your apartment. If you find a pet-friendly apartment, browse their website for pet policies or give the apartment leasing office a call to notify them that you have a pet.
Don’t Forget to Register: When searching for a pet-friendly apartment, make sure to read the pet policy and ask about any additional fees. When preparing to move in, chat with your new leasing office about properly registering your pet at the community.
Show Responsibility: Showing your leasing team that both you and your pet are responsible can go a long way. If you’ve lived in an apartment with a pet before, ask your previous community for a letter of recommendation. It’s also helpful to show that your pet has been to a training class and is up-to-date on their pet vaccinations.
