2,465 Dog Friendly Apartments for rent in Minnehaha, WA
The name Minnehaha is widely believed to mean "laughing water," and was made famous in the Henry Wadsworth Longfellow poem "The Song of Hiawatha." As fun as the name with a half-laugh is to say, it's actually a Dakota native word meaning "rapid water" or "curling water," and references waterfalls.
The early residents of the part of Clark County, Washington that came to be known as Minnehaha were introduced to the name by a newspaper editor who likened Burnt Bridge Creek to the waters of Longfellow's imagination. They took to the name, and it has stuck like glue in hair ever since. The census designated place is part of the greater Vancouver, Washington area, which is part of the Portland, Oregon metro. It's home to just about 10,000 people who enjoy the convenient location and available housing choices. Additionally, the shops at Vancouver Mall and Vancouver Plaza are close. See more
Finding an apartment in Minnehaha 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.
