Well, it doesn't end in "ville." According to local lore, it was originally proposed that the new town being laid out be named after the founders and called Stevensonville. Frank and Mary Stevenson vetoed the idea and a railroad official suggested it be called something that didn't end in "ville" because there were so many already. A settler suggested naming the town after the "Mountain that Roared," that natives called Enumclaw, the "place of evil spirits."
Enumclaw is the nearest town to Mount Rainier National Park and as such has holds claim to being the gateway to Mount Rainier. It's a fitting description, as just beyond Enumclaw the highway starts to climb into the Cascade Foothills on the approach to the famous volcano. The city of over 10,000 is surrounded by forest to the east and farmland to the north and west. It's still within the greater Seattle Tacoma metro area -- barely. Part outer suburb, part farm town, and part mountain gateway, it's a nice little burg with a lot to offer. You've probably heard of Mutual of Omaha, thanks in part to the television show "Wild Kingdom," but did you know there was a Mutual of Enumclaw that was actually founded 11 years earlier? See more
Finding an apartment in Enumclaw 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.
