General resources on renting with pets

The Humane Society of the United States offers a comprehensive website on renting with pets. You'll find lots of helpful info here!

 

Where to stay while you are looking - pets on approval:

The Parkwood Inn (4455 Juneau St) has affordable rates. Call 563-3590 or 1-800-478-3590, Fax 563-5560,

The Eagle River Motel (11111 Old Eagle River Rd) is near the military bases and does take pets on approval. They will rent by the week. Call 694-5000.

The Sourdough Visitors Lodge (801 Erickson St.) rents by the day, week or month. Call 279-4148.

Microtel in Eagle River (13049 Old Glenn Highway, 622-6000) and Anchorage (5205 Northwood Drive, 245-5002)  also accept pets.

 

If you cat is not declawed

Declawing is a painful amputation procedure, but some landlords insist that cats be declawed. You may be able to get a letter from your veterinarian stating that it is medically inappropriate for your cat to be declawed. With that and a promise to keep your cat from damaging the property, your landlord may agree. (Or try another landlord!!) Check out our brochure "Save the Sofa / Save the Claws" for smart solutions to cat-scratching problems.

 

Read your lease!

If your landlord has agreed to allow pets, make sure you review the lease and 
that any “no-pets” clauses are crossed out and initialed by you and your landlord. 
Put in writing the names of the specific pets you are allowed to have. Make sure 
you have a copy of the lease for yourself in case there is a change in landlord. 
Because a lease is a legal document, even if the pet rules change, you can keep 
your pet under the terms of the lease you signed (that is, your pet is “grandfathered 
in”) for as long as the lease is in effect. However, new pets that you would wish to 
bring into the rental would be subject to the new rules.
