Nashville, TN working to provide more

pet-friendly housing

According to the ASCPA, over 1 million families are forced to re-home their pets each year.  Although the reasons vary, over 33% of them say it is due to lack of available pet-friendly housing.  

Families are often devastated by the decision they must make and the toll on the pets that are forced to leave the only security they have known is sometimes life-threatening.  Pets grieve the loss of their family.  They are afraid and often withdraw to the point of severe depression, not eating and eventual death.  Those that survive often have personalities and trauma from which they never recover.

Before adopting a pet, PLEASE make sure that your current housing situation is pet-friendly and that you have a plan should you need to relocate for safe and continuous care for your pets.

In an effort to reduce this stress for pet-families, many more apartments and landlords are allowing families with pets affordable rental options. 

Music City Animal Rescue would like to provide you with a link to a pet-friendly apartment guide.  This guide is a one stop shop.  Not only does it direct you to locations, but it helps you look for basic things like size, location, and price as well as amenities like swimming pool, furnished, and even hardwood flooring (which we know is important to families with pets and kids). You can even check reviews before contacting them.

Please consider using this guide and do your research before adopting a pet.  Pets are our responsibility.  They give us unconditional love and devotion, we should do the same for them.
