Pet Considerations

There are multiple things to consider when owning a pet in Gainesville. Pets can be a liability to both you and to the complex you are staying at. If you have large-breed pets, you may have to call to get clarification on whether or not they are permitted. Having a larger animal can be difficult, as they need space to roam and expend energy. If not, you may have a problem with your drinks getting knocked over. However, if you do own a pet that needs to go outside, then you can check out the map on the search page to see if there are any trails or parks nearby to walk them, and also what floor-plans work for owning a pet. Ultimately you have to decide if the time commitment and schedule you have to live by with owning a pet is worth it to you.

Roommate Matching for Pets

If an apartment does accept your pet or if you do not want to be with someone who has a pet, the roommate-matching feature will allow you to partner with people that share your same sentiments on animals inside the apartment. If the thought of living with a cat or dog scares you, or if you do not want to have to hear them making noise in the apartment next door, you have the option to see all of the apartments that do not allow pets.

Smaller Pets

Even if you own a bird or a fish, you still have the option to see whether or not the apartment works for them. Taking care of a larger pet can be more time consuming and a hassle, but smaller ones like birds and fish are much easier to manage with a busy schedule.
