"The Blood Waters of Dr. Z", a 1971 B-movie about an evil scientist who develops a formula that turns human beings into walking catfish (yes, you read that correctly, walking catfish) was filmed partly in Green Cove Springs. The movie became famous in the late 1990s after it was lampooned on the television series Mystery Science Theater 3000.
On the shores of the St. Johns River, near a bend surrounded by lush green trees, sits the city of Green Cove Springs. Thousands of years ago, Native Americans were the future city's first inhabitants, drawn to what would become Green Cove Springs by the same mineral-suffused waters that, in the early 19th century, gave the community its name. Today, the city, which serves as the seat of Clay County in northeast Florida is home to 6,908 residents who enjoy a variety of amenities that meet their practical and recreational needs. This includes restaurants and shops that keep them fed and clothed to a city-owned pier and a public swimming pool filled by the same spring waters that attracted the region's first residents so many years ago.

Finding an apartment in Green Cove Springs 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.
