Call Alamo, California, an unincorporated community or even call it a census-designated place, but don't call it a city. Technically, it just isn't one. This suburban community in Contra Costa County spans a little more than 9.5 square miles and is called home by around 14,750 residents (2010 U.S. Census). Alamo is far from a new community, as it was settled more than 5,000 years ago. Today, it's the very definition of suburbia, with lots of greenery, gossiping locals, and board members who decide just how long you're allowed to let your lawn grow. See more
Finding an apartment in Alamo 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.
