Tips for Securing a Rental with Pets

Renting in San Diego as a Pet Owner

Create a "pet package" to send to the landlord:

  • Get Pet Insurance: In addition to the standard rental application, credit report and background check, disclose that you have pet insurance.
  • References: Provide past landlords as references to vouch for your reliability and cleanliness as a renter with a pet.
  • Meet and Greet: Extend an invitation for the owner to meet your pet so they can experience your pet's wonderful disposition firsthand.
  • Highlight Positive Accolades: Be sure to share if your pet has received any extra training or certifications. Consider creating a pet resume to highlight these accomplishments as well as personal and professional pet references.
