While apartment hunting can be a pain, city hunting is even worse. Where to set down those roots? Ladies and Gentlemen, I present: Springdale, Arkansas, a city that bills itself as “The City With a Heart,” ‘cause it’s so full of friendly folks.
Those folks have good reason to be friendly, mind you, as Springdale weathered the recession pretty well. Its population grew and Springdalians (official term) make more money here than in most other parts of Arkansas. The credit for these small miracles may have something to do with the fact that Springdale is home to over 95 churches. Holy cow!

Finding an apartment in Springdale 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.
