The most dog-friendly apartment cities

posted July 24th, 2015 by
Pet Friendly Ratings

Andrew Woo, a Data Scientist at Apartment List, thought you might be interested in their Dog-Friendliness Index (they will publish the Cat-Friendliness Index next month). Nationwide, only 24% of apartments allow dogs, but there is significant variation across cities and states.

Pet Friendly Ratings2

Edmond ranked #8 out of 200 cities in dog-friendliness, with 48% of apartments allowing dogs

Oklahoma City ranked #59 out of the same 200 cities in dog-friendliness, with 32% of apartments allowing dogs

Tulsa ranked #120 out of the same 200 cities in dog-friendliness, with 21% of apartments allowing dogs

The State of Oklahoma ranked #18 of all states in dog-friendliness, with 39% of apartments allowing dogs

Arlington, TX comes in at the top of the list, with 61% of apartments allowing dogs. Other cities that performed well included Indianapolis (43%), Chicago (42%), Denver (42%) and Seattle (41%).

East Coast cities don’t appear to be very dog-friendly. Your best bet may be Alexandria or Arlington, where ~35% of apartments allow dogs.

The best states for renters with dogs are Texas and Colorado; worst are Vermont, New York, and Rhode Island.

Duke (00000002)OH, if only – – probably the most popular phrase in rescue.  IF ONLY people would spay/neuter.  IF ONLY people would provide a safe place for their pets.  IF ONLY all dogs were on heart-worm and flea/tick prevention.  IF ONLY all cats were spayed/neutered – including barn cats, feral cats, outdoor cats and inside cats.  IF ONLY people would realize adopting a pet should not be a spur-of-the-moment decision.  IF ONLY all pets were micro-chipped. IF ONLY dog fighters would find a different sport – one that hurt no one – – especially dogs who have no voice.  IF ONLY people understood the wonderful connection that can happen when they bring a pet into their home. IF ONLY the municipal shelters, private shelters and foster-based rescues never, ever had to say “no” we have no space.  IF ONLY everyone in Oklahoma decided they would support good spay/neuter legislation for their city and/or county.  IF ONLY,  IF ONLY spay/neuter were the two most popular words in everyone’s “‘pet” vocabulary.  IF ONLY – – – – IF ONLY.
