HOUSTON - Houston is one of the most pet-friendly cities in the U-S.
That's according to Abodo, an online apartment locator in Madison, Wisconsin, who “doggedly” evaluated hundreds of thousands of rental listings to compile the friendliest cities for our four-legged friends.
Tails were wagging when dogs heard, 46% of H-town apartments listed on Abodo allow dogs and cats. Hey, that makes Houston third in the country when it comes to pet-friendly cities… and that’s nothing to snarl at since Abodo says about 70% of apartment renters are pet owners.
Animals don’t have it too “ruff” in the Lone Star State. Four Texas cities were in the top 10:
- San Antonio
- New York
- Lexington, KY
But as renters know, no matter where you and your furry friend live... size matters.
“It’s been easy for me because I have small dogs, although a lot of apartments have breed restrictions and weight restrictions that some of my friends have had issues with,” says Kourtnie Ivey.
Philip Franklin has a 35-lbs. shepherd mix and says finding an apartment isn't easy, “We’ve moved three times in the Houston area, and every time we move it’s a question of not where we want to move but where can our dog be accepted.” Aww, that’s a dog gone shame.
For now, we’ll just “paws” and celebrate being #3.
