Not only is Metairie a major New Orleans suburb, it was also NOLA's first! Since New Orleans is one of the nation's first cities, that makes Metairie pretty old, too. It was established in the mid-1700s. Today, Metairie is one of the largest suburbs in the United States with more than 450,000 residents. Sitting on the south shore of Lake Pontchartrain, Metairie is a bustling community all of its own. Residents can work, live and play in Metairie without ever needing to drive into New Orleans, but most residents do take the 10-mile trek in at least occasionally. Wouldn't you? See more
Finding an apartment in Metairie 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.
