64 Dog Friendly Apartments for rent in Sebastian, FL
Sebastian, Florida, is the home of the first segment of property that eventually became the National Wildlife Refuge System. Thank an early 20th-century German immigrant who wanted to protect brown pelicans.
If you like the theme-park atmosphere so common in Florida, don't bother moving to Sebastian. This small city is proud that there are no Mickey Mouse parades or a view of roller coasters riding wildly off into the sunset. It's located on Florida's east coast at the state's midpoint with only a narrow barrier island separating the neighborhoods and Atlantic Ocean, and forming a lagoon. U.S. Route 1 runs along the eastern edge. With a population nearing 22,000, as of the 2010 U.S. Census, the city is a very affordable, small-town Florida but with all the amenities. There are Atlantic beaches, monthly arts and crafts shows, trendy restaurants, and Pelican Island, the first designated wildlife refuge. No wonder it's a quiet community--it purposely went to the birds! See more
Finding an apartment in Sebastian 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.
