146 Dog Friendly Apartments for rent in Grand Ledge, MI
Grand Ledge, Michigan, is one of the most popular places in the country for rock climbers, who flock here to scale the sandstone routes located high above the Grand River.
Grand Ledge has a population of 7,786 (2010 census), and it's safe to say that a large percentage of these locals may well be rock climbers. This town is a mecca for folks who love to scale the area's magnificent sandstone and quartzite rock ledges, many of which rise to more than 60 feet. Back in the 1870s, Grand Ledge was reinvented as a resort town, where entrepreneurs peddled the healthful waters from the local mineral springs. In 1891, these savvy developers even built an amusement park here, complete with animals, a merry-go-round and Michigan's first roller coaster. All of this may be gone now, but what remains is a wonderfully scenic town with a friendly, unhurried atmosphere; beautiful nature centers; picturesque historic buildings and loads of charm and personality -- even without the roller coaster.

Finding an apartment in Grand Ledge 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.
