995 Dog Friendly Apartments for rent in Butner, NC
During WWII, the city of Butner, North Carolina, was known as The Camp Butner Reservation. The mission of the camp was to train combat troops. At the time, the reservation contained barracks, support services, rifle ranges, artillery ranges and a prisoner of war compound.
Officially incorporated as a town in November of 2007, Butner was managed by the state starting in 1947 after the military ceased using it as a training camp. Today, Butner is a rural suburban town located within commuting distance of Raleigh and Durham. An agricultural community turned military camp turned state hospital facility turned suburban hamlet, Butner offers a peaceful place to call home within easy access to all the benefits that a large urban center like Raleigh-Durham has to offer. Since the town is still new, it's in transition from its former self into a true suburban community. New amenities like restaurants, shops, playground equipment at local parks and a pedestrian plan for the town are still being implemented. If you don't mind getting in on a new town while it's still young and in development, Butner may be just the right place for you to find an apartment. See more
Finding an apartment in Butner 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.
