City Guide for Franklin, WI

Records of overwhelmed Wisconsin suburbanites trying to distance themselves from the Milwaukee rat race date all the way back to 1956 when Franklin town officials went into hiding to dodge summons servers attempting to annex the small community to the City of Milwaukee.

Organized into a township in 1841, Franklin has evolved from rugged wilderness to open farmland to a charming suburb that also brings some serious economic vigor to the table. Office parks and new housing are springing up rapidly, making this an ideal locale for young families to work and play. The manufacturing industry is still alive and well in Franklin. Nearly 3,000 residents are employed at 34 plants, including industrial food processors, paper packaging, printing and machinery. Seniors also enjoy the slow place of life in Franklin and appreciate the hospital, 6 clinics and 24 retirement homes located within the community. The strong presence of health care facilities draws in an army of job seekers and more than 4,000 residents are employed in the health and education industries. Big city fixes are easy to satisfy with downtown Milwaukee only 10 miles away and downtown Chicago a quick 80-mile drive. Relaxation aficionados will enjoy the 16 city parks, 11 county parks and 7 others -- 3,881 total acres of outdoor recreation space. See more

What to keep in mind when looking for dog friendly apartments in Franklin, WI

Finding an apartment in Franklin 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.
