Trying to find a place to live while living with pets can be a hard task to accomplish. You may feel as if every place you're looking doesn't want your beloved pets to come along. For many pet owners, it's not considered a viable option to simply give their pets away. In this case, you'll be happy to know that the amount of apartments near Orlando that allow pets is massive. Whether it's an aquarium, a bird, a dog, or a cat, you'll be able to find an Orlando apartment to house both you and your beloved pets.

When looking for an Orlando apartment that is pet friendly it's good to get all of the details up front. It's hard to find a place that doesn't accept aquariums and birds, but you should double check to make sure that your little critter is allowed in your home. However, many Orlando apartments will place restrictions on cats and dogs. The breed, weight, and number of pets you have can all be restricted by your apartment – so make sure you get first-hand knowledge about those restrictions before you sign any agreement.

Many Orlando apartments are incredibly dog friendly! Some even offer dog-friendly amenities. Dog walks, with waste bags available along the path to pick up after your dog are perfect for those interested in keeping their dog fit and active. Most, small, non-aggressive dogs will be allowed throughout Orlando apartments, but as always it's important to find out the restrictions. Many apartments won't allow Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, and even German Shepherds. Even though your dog maybe the friendliest dog in the world despite breed, you don't want to break your lease by keeping a restricted dog breed in your home. Weight restrictions are often in place as well. Some Orlando apartments have no weigh restrictions and some set theirs at 20 or 30 pounds.

In most Orlando apartments cats are welcome but the number of them are usually restricted. Having one cat in your apartment is usually fine, but any more than that and you might be charged exorbitant fees for each cat. Once again, it's always important to check with your landlord on the restrictions that your Orlando apartment has.
