Pet Proofing Your Home—by HomeAdvisor

Home is a place where every life should be safe and protected from potential threats. When family members can’t take steps to protect themselves, it is up to those who can to ensure their safety. For many, pets are considered a part of the family, and as with infants or small children, they must be protected from things that can harm them. The best way to do that is to pet-proof the home

Help for Finding Animal Friendly Rental Properties:

Apartment locators can be helpful. But you have to work on their schedule and some of them don't seem to run the most professional operation. Even the ones that have a website hide important information from you so you can't do any apartment hunting without them.  Driving around looking just isn't very efficient, and if you aren't in town...it's plain impossible.  EverythingAustinApartments.com attempts to solve these problems for the Austin area. It's the only way to apartment shop 24 hours a day. You can quickly shop around by location, number of bedrooms, and rent. Once you narrow it down you can get even more information about a certain complex.

Why does The Humane Society of the United States have a position about rental housing policies?

Because we envision a world where people and pets live happy, healthy lives, thriving together. And we work to eliminate barriers to that goal.

Sadly, one of those barriers is a lack of rental housing that is truly welcoming to pets.

People with pets often struggle to find housing that accepts their whole family. That lack of accessible housing often has disastrous consequences.

Some people are forced to relinquish their pets to shelters, ripping those families apart. Being forced to choose between a beloved pet and a safe home can have detrimental impacts on people’s physical health and emotional well-being, and contributes to the euthanasia of nearly 3 million healthy, adoptable dogs and cats in shelters each year. In some cases, people would rather live on the streets than give up their animals.

We believe housing issues should never cost pets their homes.
