HOW TO FIND PET-FRIENDLY HOUSING
Finding a home for you and your pet
Thank you for recognizing that our four-legged companions are part of the family and should go wherever you go!
No Kill Pima County understands that finding a new rental home or renter/homeowner’s insurance for you and your pet can be a difficult task. Even when a rental property is listed as pet friendly there are several things to consider. The tips below will help you get started in finding the best fit for you and your family in Tucson.
Show You Are a Responsible Pet Owner
It is your responsibility to show that you are a good pet owner by keeping references, medical records and licenses current. Having a prior landlord reference can help in validating that you are a responsible pet owner and have a well behaved animal. Other sources of references can be from your veterinarian, trainer or even a neighbor.
Rental Homes and Townhomes
If you have a dog it is best to search for homes and townhomes first. They often have yards and private owners may be more flexible with pet deposits and fees. In addition, they may prove to be less expensive than an apartment that charges large pet deposits and monthly pet rent.
Rental Websites are the best way to find a variety of current rental properties that accepts pets. You can even search for your specific criteria and location.
Rental companies identified as bully breed friendly:
San Xavier Casitas (520) 777-4089 requires a one-time non-refundable pet fee of $400.00 for one pet and $100.00 for a second pet. No monthly fee. 2 pet limit
Tucson Rental Homes (520) 299-4466 requires a one-time non-refundable pet fee of $300.00 for one pet and $100.00 for a second pet. Plus $25 per month per pet.
Other rental companies:
Another option is to contact a property management company (listed below) and provide them with your living and financial criteria. They will let you know if they have any available properties that meet your needs.
