Myth Buster: No Pets in Apartments? I Need a House

While some properties say no to pets in their apartments, that doesn’t mean that you need to live in a house to own a furry friend.

Rest assured that the Windy City offers plenty of apartment buildings with pet-friendly policies.

How to find a pet-friendly apartment

According to a FirePaw Study, 53 percent of rental apartments accept cats and 37 percent allow dogs.

If you’re on the hunt to find an apartment that welcomes animals, you want to check your potential property’s rules and regulations. The property lease should clearly outline the building’s policy on pets.

If you have further questions you can speak with a broker or someone directly from the management company.

Even if an apartment is ‘pet-friendly’ be sure to read up on any stipulations. Check to see if there is a limit on the number of animals allowed, the type of animals allowed, etc.

Also, keep in mind that pet-friendly apartments may require a pet fee or deposit. If this is the case, it’s important to include that extra expense into your budget.

Standard Offerings at Pet-Friendly Apartments

Not only do many Chicago apartments allow pets, but many are even designed with pets in mind.

You can find buildings in the city that boast some pretty spectacular pet-driven amenities. How awesome would it be if you could bring your furry friend to a pet park, pet spa, and pet sitter without having to ever leave your building?

Many of these building offerings are often included in the cost of rent, which can actually help reduce extra stress and cost associated with taking care of your animal.
