Pelican Bay is a small community in Collier County, Florida. With a population of a little more than 5,600 residents, it is located along the shore on the west coast of the Sunshine State, on the Gulf of Mexico. It is considered a part of the Naples-Marco Island metropolitan area. It has a small land area of 3.4 square miles, making it an ideal location to settle down. Pelican Bay was purchased as land in 1972 and targeted for development that would have destroyed much of its natural beauty. Known for its acres of mangrove trees, development proceeded but with a plan to preserve its natural resources, and its mangrove forest was designated a natural resource protection area by the county.

Finding an apartment in Pelican Bay 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.
