Lancaster County Rental Guide to Friendly Housing

This list by no means is comprehensive of all the rental properties. The information is subject to change, it is the responsibility of the person looking for a rental property to confirm the rules and regulations of the rental property. Landlords will still be called to give permission for the adoption of an animal.

Hints When finding a Rental with a pet

In the process of searching for pet friendly rental accommodation the following hints will be useful.

  • Raise the subject of pets in person with the owner/manager if possible. Presenting information about yourself and your pet in a face-to-face meeting will have a better impact than if it is raised over the telephone.
  • Prepare and have handy a complete résumé on your pet which includes all medical records, obedience school certificates and written references from past landlords, neighbors, obedience schools and veterinarians.
  • Offer to sign a pet agreement to clearly define behavior appropriate to the rental premises.
  • Encourage the owner/manager to meet your well-groomed, well-behaved pet to demonstrate it is responsibly cared for and obedient.

DEMONSTRATING YOU ARE A RESPONSIBLE PET OWNER

Your Pet’s Details
Create a résumé for you and your pet(s) which includes documents as proof of spay/neuter surgery, current medical records including vaccinations and proof of regular veterinary visits and any obedience school documents

References
Include in the résumé written references from previous landlords, neighbors, obedience class instructors and veterinarians.

Pet Agreement
Offer to jointly develop and sign a pet agreement with your landlord which covers all likely situations which may arise and actions to be taken in the event that problems or issues arise with your pet.

Meeting
Offer to bring your pet to meet the property owner/manager to demonstrate it is well behaved and cared-for.

Further demonstrate you are a responsible pet owner by explaining that:

  • you provide appropriate levels of exercise and attention to your pet at all times;
  • you do not let your pet roam the streets;
  • you make suitable arrangements to care for your pet if you are away on business or vacations;
  • you always keep control of your dog in public places, and you hygienically clean up after your pet at all times

A résumé on your pet will not only provide the owner/manager with all relevant information about your pet, it will also clearly demonstrate you are a responsible pet owner.

Information you include should cover:

  • a physical description of your pet ­ name, age and physical appearance;
  • details of any training your pet has received;
  • a description of your exercise regime with your pet (if applicable) covering the number of times you exercise your pet, the usual location and the usual duration of each outing; and
  • details on the health and grooming of your pet, covering issues such as neutering, vaccination record and how frequently you groom it.

In addition, mention anything about your pet’s age, activity level or traits which help reinforce that it is a ‘good tenant’.When the above information is provided with references attached, you will be ensuring the owner/manager makes their decision with the benefit of a full description of your pet and its habits, and in the knowledge that you are a responsible pet owner.
