Default Moving to Parkersburg

Can any one tell me of a nice apartment or house for rent that will allow two dogs?? We have two Golden Retrievers and will have renter's insurance should any damage occur.

I will be moving in mid August, my husband will join me when our house in WI sells.

I think I woudl post an ad in the local paper and offer to pay an extra $100 per month for a rural house to rent...city apartments have code conformity and unless the dog is in the 'servant classification, you are pretty well barking up the wrong tree..

Your Bulletim Board serves that area and is a good lead for rentals...Your Bulletin Board Online

this will be tough to do, Susan...as there are 2 dogs...the earlire you can get a handle on it, the better.

I think if you're a renter now and can ask your current landlord for a letter of recomendation it's likely to go a long way with landlords wary of irresponsible pet owners. Locally I've seen pet limits by weight (10 lbs or less). Usually they make blanket statements of no smoking no pets because they've been burned by both at one point or another.

Some apartment complexes also offer the option of increasing the ammount of security deposit to protect themselves. Consider having extra money for your endeavor as your best chance to secure housing with your doggies in mind.

I didn't sign up at that site, but just going by their coverage map, I don't think this area is included.

If you could get the printed copy of the Bulletin Board which is published in Parkersburg, I think you could find a rental that allows pets, but they'll usually ask for references in most cases.

The office number for Bulletin Board is 304-422-9414 Mon. & Wed. 8-Noon, Tues. & Thurs. 8-5, Fri. 8-4, they might mail a copy. Bulletin Board is printed weekly.

Should you decide to place a wanted ad for your house, the 24hr. Ad-Taker numbers are: Area code (304) 422-9411, 422-9412, 422-9413, 422-9416. Ad deadline is Sunday 9pm, but I would call much earlier in the week, the numbers are the most busy as the deadline nears.

As time allows, I'll scan this week's copy, I never fail to get one.

I'm in P-burg, if I can help, just ask. TR

EDIT- I found many listings, some specify no pets, others don't. Found one in the city that said "pets welcome", and another location unknown that allowed pets with an extra deposit, but also an extra $25 per month if you have a pet. Forgot to check rental apartments. TR

It would probably be more economical to buy a house in Parkersburg than to try to rent with 2 dogs. We moved here from Texas with 2 dogs and 4 cats! We wanted to rent for a while but found out it is nearly impossible with pets. We bought a nice, old, home for $64,000.
