Finding a pet-friendly rental and being a good renter with a pet

Download Resource

Please, if you cannot immediately find housing that accepts pets, do NOT abandon your pet in the hope that someone else will find and care for him, or in the hope that you’ll be able to come back later and get him. Pets depend on us for their care. If you absolutely cannot find a pet-friendly rental, bring your pet to the Dumb Friends League or another reputable shelter or rescue group.
