Pet Policy

Pet & Animal Policy

Rental applications with household pets and or service/companion/assistance animals are required to submit a pet profile through a third-party pet screening company and provide photos and vaccinations records as a part of our rental application process. This applies across the board for any non-human animals that will occupy the home. Pet screenings are $20 for the first pet and $15 for additional pets. Service/companion animals are exempt.

PetScreening.com will assign a “Paw Score” that will determine your monthly pet rent and a one-time non-refundable pet fee. This score is determined using a proprietary formula that considers things like pet age, weight, breed, vaccination records, etc.

  • 5 Paws - $250 pet fee, $25/mo
  • 4 Paws - $300 pet fee, $30/mo
  • 3 Paws - $350 pet fee, $35/mo
  • 2 Paws - $400 pet fee, $40/mo
  • 1 Paw - $500 pet fee, $50/mo (highest risk)
