Any pet owner who has ever moved with their pet has probably encountered the challenge of finding a truly pet friendly apartment complex. To make the search a little easier in Madison and surrounding communities, check out these complexes and management companies for a headstart:

*JSM Properties, (608) 255-3933. Manages multiple properties in the greater Madison area.

*Madison Property Management, (608) 251-8777. Many different Madison locations of all sizes.

*Resident Services, Inc., (608) 848-8365. Manages several properties for different sizes and budgets.

*Prairie Crest Apartment Homes, (608) 845-7255. Property in Verona, WI.

*Springtree Apartments, (608) 836-8640. Located in Middleton, WI.

*Goldleaf Development, Locations in Madison and Sun Prairie.

*Steve Brown Apartments, (877) SBA-1300. Multiple locations in Dane County.

*Prima Management, Inc., (608) 831-4035. Most managed communities are pet friendly.

It may sound elementary, but a simple web search for "pet friendly apartments Madison WI" also turns up a large amount of individual complexes and locations. Another simple resource is word of mouth: asking around to find out where friends, co-workers, or casual acquaintances lease can lead renters to hidden gems they may not have otherwise found.

An important fact to keep in mind when searching for a new rental home is that "pet friendly" does not necessarily mean that every type of pet is welcome. Breed restrictions are often in place for insurance purposes, and many apartments charge an extra fee or "pet rent" to cover possible damages to the property. Additionally it may be a requirement that pets are spayed/neutered, or declawed in the case of cats. Be sure to ask for clarification of the pet policy before signing a lease (it may take several tries before finding an apartment with a pet policy that is good for both owner and pet.) Renters with pets have an advantage living in Dane County, since nearly half of residents are renters. That means more choices are available, and with a little persistence pet owners should be able to find the perfect, pet friendly home with relative ease.
