Eliminate The Option, Not The Pet. Pet Friendly Living in NWA.

One of the biggest excuses people use as justification for rehoming or abandoning their pets at shelters is “I’m moving & I can’t have pets at the new place.” THIS EXCUSE DRIVES ME BONKERS!  I just can NOT accept that excuse for anything other than laziness & not really loving your pet.  You may have to look a little bit harder or a little further down the road but finding a pet friendly rental is more than possible.

When we adopted Mulligan we were living in a house & decided we wanted to move elsewhere.  We began to look at different rental options and we had to eliminate some of our potential options due to their pet policy.  But thats just it… we eliminated our options NOT OUR FUR BABY!

I have done hours of research, called countless places, spoken to different rental owners, and have complied a list of pet friendly rentals here in Northwest Arkansas.  This list includes the name of the rental, the pet policy, pricing, and more.  Pretty much everything you need to know.

When I called these places I explained my name was Lindsay & I am a blogger writing about pet friendly places to live in NWA – so my intentions were stated upfront.  Almost everyone was helpful & friendly but I did have a few places decline to answer which tells you all you need to know.  Naturally the most friendly & helpful places were the ones that are truly pet friendly (50+ pounds).  The few people who seemed irritated with the fact they answered my call came from places with the 20 pounds or less rule. On that note: (1) seriously how many people own dogs under 20 pounds? and (2)  I would like to just say if they think a dog is more destructive than a college kid… they should reevaluate!

I promised I would publish this post by the end of today BUT I am still getting a LOT of calls back from places & waiting to hear back from several others.  That being said I am going to go ahead and publish what I have but I will be adding a “Fur Friendly Living” tab under “Fur Friendly Fayetteville” where you will be able to reference this info along with more places as they come in.

One thought on “Eliminate The Option, Not The Pet. Pet Friendly Living in NWA.

  1. Thanks for this blog. I was getting frustrated trying to find an apartment/rental that did not have such severe weight restrictions. I have never run into such problems before trying to rent with a dog.
