City Guide for Alabaster, AL

Have you ever wondered why the Alabama town of Alabaster shares its name with a material used to make cemetery monuments? It's because the town owes its existence to an ambitious entrepreneur named George L. Scott, Sr., who produced this material. Alabaster started out as a small collection of houses for his employees, but it has since grown into a city of over 30,000 people.

One of the major attractions of Alabaster is that it is located conveniently close to Birmingham. This is definitely commuter country -- most residents jump in their cars every morning for a 20-mile journey north into Birmingham, then return home in the evening to enjoy the peace and quiet of Alabaster. If you love big city living, you might be disappointed by the amenities currently on offer here: there's only one major shopping complex, for example. However, what you lose in urban convenience by locating yourself 20 miles outside of Birmingham, you gain in terms of affordable premier apartments, easy access to green space, and great amenities. You could do a lot worse than to choose this fast-growing suburban city. See more

What to keep in mind when looking for dog friendly apartments in Alabaster, AL

Finding an apartment in Alabaster that accepts your pet may not be easy, but it’s very possible. Keep in mind, most of the time you’ll have to pay a premium for bringing your dog along in your new apartment. Some apartments require you to pay monthly pet rent, others will ask for a non-refundable pet fee or a refundable pet deposit.

While landlords and property management companies have varying pet policies, most of them limit the number of dogs you can bring to your apartment and include breed and weight restrictions.

If your pet falls under some of the restrictions outlined in the pet policy, it’s still worth asking the landlord if they can make an exception for your dog. Preparing a pet resume ahead of time could help you build the case for your furry friend. Make sure to include information on behavioral training your dog went through over the years and proof of vaccinations. If you can, include references from your former landlord and/or neighbors.
