we love our pets!
dwell management is proud to be a leader in portland, oregon for pet friendly rentals. pet owners and non-pet owners alike find our properties to be a place to call home because our properties are pet friendly and yet, they are in impeccable condition. pet owners have been overjoyed to find properties available that are comfortable for them and for their pet, as all too often pet owners are hard pressed to find a quality rental that is also pet friendly.
portland is a very pet friendly city. practically every neighborhood welcomes you and your pet with pet friendly restaurants, gourmet animal treat cafés, doggie day care and walking services, off-leash parks, excellent veterinarians and much more. check out our blog for details on some of the best places in town to enjoy with your pet.
dwell management has a very basic pet policy. most of our properties allow almost any pet you could imagine! we have had mastiffs and chihuahuas, cats and mice (not together of course), snakes, ferrets, birds and rabbits. we understand that a pet plays a significant part of many people’s life, so we strive to allow most animals in most of our rental properties. please make sure to ask if the property that has caught your eye accepts pets.
in light of the times and some recent court cases, dwell management has been forced to make the decision to disallow some breeds of dogs from occupying our rental properties. these breeds are american staffordshire terrier/pit bull, doberman pincher, rottweiler, shar-pei, chow, wolf, wolf hybrids, presa canario and dogo. the limit for these breeds also includes mixed breed dogs with one or more of the prohibited breeds in the mix. we also reserve the right to research any other breed and deny based upon the temperament descriptions of sources deemed reputable by dwell management. the only other restriction we have is that your animal must be one year of age or older. we are willing to work with some puppies and kittens depending on their age, training and general application information of their owners; however this is handled on a case by case basis and you can expect to submit a $500 deposit in addition to the pet rent you will pay on a monthly basis for your animal (pet rent will be charged according to anticipated to full grown weight of your animal). if you have several pets, please call to make sure that we have a property suitable for a large number of animals.
when you apply for one of our units, you will simply need to submit photographs of your pet(s) within 24 hours. for dogs and cats, we request a face and body shot. this policy serves as a way for us to document your animals better as we know that all animals have their special markings and we want to know which animals belong to you. this is also helpful once you have moved in, as we have had cases where an animal has slipped out of an owner’s control, jumped or dug under a fence or escaped out the door as a friend arrives. when we have photos, it helps us identify your animal so that if we get a call about a captured animal, we know how to proceed and return them safely to you.
dwell management charges pet rent each month for each of your animals. the term “pet rent” is simply rent you will pay for the allowance of your pet to occupy the rental unit with you. pet rent is charged on a monthly basis and is paid with your rent. the charges break down as follows for different types and sizes of animals:
please call us with any questions you may have about our pet policy. and remember, don’t just live…dwell.
