Swissvale has a long history of supporting its feistiest citizens. This small spot is named after a farm owned by abolitionist and feminist Jane Swisshelm. The legacy of equality lives on! Her father in law John Swisshelm served under George Washington during the Revolutionary War.
This 1.3 mile borough, a suburb of Pittsburgh in Allegheny County, has almost 9,000 residents. Conveniently located to the culture, entertainment and retail options of the big city, Swissvale maintains a feeling of small-town bliss. The small Pittsburgh offshoot is just close enough to jump into the proud Midwestern industrial city at a moment's notice, but far enough away to enjoy the calmness and pace of suburbia. See more
Finding an apartment in Swissvale 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.
