City Guide for Yelm, WA

"We crossed the river and went to Yelm prairie, a beautiful spot. I thought as it lay before us covered with tall waving grass, a pretty stream bordered with shrubs and tall trees, flowing through it, and the majestic mountain standing guard over all, in its snowy coat, it was a scene fit for an artist." - American settler James Longmire.

The City of Yelm is part of Thurston County and is located on the western side of the state of Washington. It has a total area of 5.69 square miles, of which 5.68 square miles is land area and 0.01 is water area -- so you won't spend a ton of time seaside here. There has been a significant increase of 108 percent in population since the year 2000 -- from only 3,200 residents, Yelm now has more than 6,800 people calling it home sweet home. This rapid increase is due to its location, which is near highly commercialized neighboring cities such as Olympia. Because of this growth, it currently has a higher-than-average population density of more than 1,200 people per square mile. This is only common for booming cities such as Yelm, which truly lives up to its nickname, the "Pride of the Prairie." See more

What to keep in mind when looking for dog friendly apartments in Yelm, WA

Finding an apartment in Yelm 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.
