388 Dog Friendly Apartments for rent in Boonton, NJ
Although it wasn't chartered until 1867, the town has a history that dates back to 1761 when it was called "Boone-Towne," with props to Thomas Boone, the seventh Colonial Governor of New Jersey in 1760. He must have been special because barely a year later, he was appointed Governor of South Carolina. His replacement, Thomas Hardy, didn't get any towns named after him in New Jersey or anyplace else.
With only about 2.5 square miles and a U.S. Census population of 8,496 in 2010, Boonton should remain content as a sleepy town in Morris County, New Jersey. But the locals are quick to point out that such major corporations as Unigen for pharmaceuticals, Marsen for industrial manufacturing and Packard for antique automotive equipment provide ample support for the local economy. The town also provides historic buildings and annual events to keep its residents happy. See more
Finding an apartment in Boonton 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.
