246 Dog Friendly Apartments for rent in Gonzales, LA
Gonzales likes to say it's the Jambalaya Capital of the world, mostly because the town puts on an annual Jambalaya Festival every September on Memorial Day Weekend. It also likes to use this moniker for marketing purposes-most people agree that "Jambalaya Capital of the World" is catchier than Gonzales! More recently, the city was noted as being the location where lost pets were brought after Hurricane Katrina; here, pet owners could search for the fuzzy friends from whom they'd been separated.
The City of Gonzales is a suburb of Baton Rouge, or at least it has slowly become one over the years. The population of the Baton Rouge capital city area, as it's known, slowly swelled over the years until all of the towns found between Baton Rouge and Gonzales, which are about 30 minutes apart on Interstate 10, eventually became one long city. Gonzales is part of Ascension Parish (a Parish being pretty much the same thing as a county in these parts) right off the banks of the Mississippi River. There are about 10,000 residents in Gonzales proper, but the population of the capital city is about 815,300. Life in Gonzales isn't much different from anywhere else in the U.S. because of its relative close proximity to the big city. You have a downtown-ish area that is the heart and soul of the community, which is surrounded by sprawling suburbs - you won't find any hi rise apartments here - with many choices for big-box retail shopping all over the area. It'll take you no time to adjust to your surroundings once you rent an apartment in Gonzales and settle into the area. See more
Finding an apartment in Gonzales 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.
