485 Dog Friendly Apartments for rent in Gardere, LA
New Orleans may be the place to go for Mardi Gras, but it has nothing on the Mystic Krewe of Mutts, an all-dog parade hosted by the local Animal Welfare Society in Baton Rouge. The parade is held at Mardi Gras time every year and celebrates canines in spectacular (and hilariously cute) fashion.

Finding an apartment in Gardere 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.
