Hello, I'm headed back to Nevada after living in Florida for 10 years. I grew up in Gardnerville, and recently realized how much I miss it. I will be headed back out to the area but will be attending college at Univ. of Nevada Reno. So I've been looking for apartments, and can't seem to find more than say 2 that allow dogs over 25 lbs!!!! I have a 30lb hound mix that I refuse to part with, and I can't believe it's this hard to find an apartment that will allow him. Here in FL there are hardly ever weight restrictions, and if there are, its like 50 lbs.

I would be interested in an apartment anywhere in the area, Reno, Sparks, Carson City, Gardnerville, Minden, anywhere in that area. Looking under 700 a month.

Any ideas????

Try going to http://www.forrent.com and search the reno metro area. I did it quickly and found 8 that said they would take pets in the 500 - 750 price range. Don't give up your dog, he wouldn't give you up

Also check with UNR's Student Union about housing. I think property owners list "student" friendly housing with them.

I just had to say it's really nice to see someone who wont give up their dog because they are moving.

You wouldnt believe how many dogs (and cats) get put to sleep because their owners moved & didnt care enough to find a place that allowed pets.

Good luck to you on your move

thanks for the link, i found quite a few on there. And yeah, there's no way I could give up my dog, he's like my child. I don't understand how people can just give them away after years of ownership. I saved his life, I got him from a kill shelter the day before he was to be euthanized, and in a way he saved my life too, I was going through depression after losing my mother and grandmother and he helped me through it.

Pet friendly but rather expensive would be South Meadows Vintage Apartments, and maybe the Lake Ridge apartments. South Meadows has a pond in the back of the complex where you can walk and toss a ball or stick in the pond : )
Make sure to negotiate rental rate with them. Also great dog kennel/camp to help while hunting is Honey Bears Kennel in Lemmon Valley.
Hope this helps!!!

Default suggestion reno ap

Scraps Pet food and bakery
3892 Mayberry Dr
Reno, NV 89519
(775) 787-3647

I would recommend calling our favorite pet store for their ideas (see above). Also the vet next door, Alpine Vet is great and very helpful. Some apartment search engines could help Rent.com etc. The new Humane society might even have a list of pet friendly apartments. I didn't like renting at the Vintage at South Meadows, expensive BUT they did rent to larger dogs and that big pond is a great place for them to swim and cool off.
Other suggestion: Craigslist
I found Reno to be very pet friendly.
Best of luck!

Default Update

Know this is an old thread, but have what I think is a relevant update. We are thinking of relocating to Reno, closer to family and love Tahoe. We want to rent while we figure out where we want to buy. Situation is complicated as we have two greyhounds (females so on the smaller side, 60 and 45 lb) and a little 11 lb mix. Called Vintage at South Meadows, was originally told no problem. In about an hour I received an email saying they don't take greyhounds.

While I recognize the apartment manager has the right to make this call, it is misguided, the typical greyhound isa well-behaved smart dog, does well in an apartment with a couple of 15 minute walks a day, can't ask for a better dog. The more insidious issue is it may discourage adoption of rescue greys, an important part of dealing with the damage the greyhound racing industry wreaks on these animals. So for this reason, even if you don't have a greyhound, would urge you to look elsewhere if you have a pet (or even if you don't have a pet, but sympathize with the greyhound rescue effort). Luckily appears we have found a more understanding apartment manager in Renowho will take us and our brood.
