Wendell, North Carolina, received its name based on a school teacher's preference in poets, which happened to be Oliver Wendell Holmes.
Wendell claims the motto, "Small town feel--capital city connection," referring to its proximity to North Carolina's capital, Raleigh. The town is in Wake County with a population of 5,845 according to the 2010 census. This town values its meandering lifestyle juxtaposed against the capital city rush and bustle. In the 1850s, farmers from Granville County settled Wendell in response to severe tobacco plant blight. Wendell was incorporated in 1903. Portions of the town is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, including Dr. Thomas H. Avera House, Harmony Plantation, Riley Hill School, Sunnyside historic home, and Wendell commercial Historic District.

Laurer, Wendell lives up to its famous namesake, priding itself in its small-town community and historic relevance. See more
Finding an apartment in Wendell 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.
