38 Dog Friendly Apartments for rent in Old Forge, PA
Old Forge, Pennsylvania is known by locals (and pizza aficionados) as the pizza capital of the country, thanks to its proliferation of pizzerias, all of which sell the famous regional white cheese pizza.
Old Forge may sound like a historic tourist attraction filled with costumed reenactors, but it's actually a small borough that covers about 3.5 square miles with a population of 8,313, according to the 2010 census. What is important, however, is that it's the pizza capital of the world -- at least, according to fans of the Italian treat. This distinction was bestowed upon the town thanks to its popular Old Forge Style white piazza; a regional favorite, it begins with a mixture white cheeses layered on a thick, crispy crust that's topped with olive oil and rosemary leaves. Another reason for the title is that Main Street is literally (and overwhelmingly) lined with pizza joints. In fact, the local sport here is taste-testing, so if you love pizza -- and, honestly, who doesn't? -- you've found the perfect place to call home. Outside of pizza, this former textile/coal mining town is also home to quite a few famous singers, including movie and opera stars Alan Jones and Paul Plishka, and country star Rosalie Allen. The waters of nearby Lackawanna River must be good for the vocal cords. Old Forge is the kind of town where you'll see historic buildings on Main Street, and folks relaxing and enjoying an ice cream (or more likely, a slice of pizza) in the park, even during working hours.

Finding an apartment in Old Forge 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.
