There's gold in them hills / I heard the man cry / There's gold in them hills / For the taking -- There's Gold In Them Hills, The Black Crowes
Most residents of Sherrelwood and northwest Denver probably have no idea that their land was once the site of a big time gold rush. Just down the road in Arvada, at the confluence of Clear Creek and Ralston Creek, is the site of the first gold strike in Colorado. Well, one bit of gold -- actually five dollars worth of it. This led to another, and soon the Pike's Peak Gold Rush was born. Over 100,000 people flooded the area from all over the country, coming to seek their fortunes in Colorado. After the Gold Rush, Denver was fortunate enough to secure its place as a stop on the transcontinental railroad. Once the railroad arrived, there was no holding back the city. The influx of supplies, tourists and residents to serve them secured Denver as the hub of this new western frontier. Sherrelwood grew up with the growth of Denver and is now home to about 18,000 people. See more
Finding an apartment in Sherrelwood 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.
