62 Dog Friendly Apartments for rent in Hesperia, CA
"Out of the golden remote wild west where the sea without shore is... Full of the sunset, and sad, if at all, with the fullness of joy." The great English poet Algernon Charles Swinburne once wrote of a place called Hesperia, and while he may have been only been using the words to describe everything west of Spain, much like the Ancient Romans did, the stanza still rings true for this desert town.
Hesperia is a city located inside of the Mojave Desert. Okay, that sounds bad, but it's got great stuff too! Though the city has a large population of over 90,000, its large size, a little over 70 square miles, means that there are only about 1,300 people per square mile. The railroad developers who laid out the town originally were hoping that it would become the "Omaha of the West" and have a population exceeding 100,000 people by the turn of the 20th century. Sadly, their best efforts would mean nothing until 1970 when the population quickly began growing, and by the year 2000, this little town had over 60,000 people. See more
Finding an apartment in Hesperia 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.
