1,201 Dog Friendly Apartments for rent in Olivette, MO
Geographers, physicians and astronomers, watch out, for this is a city that is home to an impressive number of scientists, running the entire gamut from social scientists, life scientists and physical scientists among others. Equally amazing is the fact that someone who stands in the middle of Price Road where Delmar ends, would technically be in three cities all at once: Olivette, University City and Ladue. Olivette, as you can see, is no ordinary city!
Previously known simply as 'Central' owing to its 'central' location, Olivette was settled in the mid-19th century as a farming community nestled along an ancient Indian trail called Bonhomme Road. It was incorporated as a city in 1930 by combining four different communities namely Central, Olive, Stratmann and Tower Hill. But how did the name Olivette come about? While the dictionary definition of an "Olivette" refers to "a large theatrical floodlight having a single bulb," this particular Olivette was probably named so because the main road into St. Louis connected with Olive Street. Presently, although Olivette is an inner-ring suburb of St. Louis, Missouri, residents treat it like their very own city. With a population of 7,737 and spread over an area of approximately 2.95 square miles, it is located 700 feet above sea level, and is one of the highest communities in St. Louis County. See more
Finding an apartment in Olivette 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.
