It's a rotten situation to rent. Basically, if you rent, you're fortunate to find any place that will accept even one pet. Here's my sad story, you didn't ask, but when I hear the word 'rent' I think of the horrible nightmare in my life that I regret to this day. I was a renter, and you know how that goes, then I finally bought a home and that was fine and I eventually got two dogs: 'Princess' a mix shepherd, and 'Charlie' a black lab. Charlie and Princess were some of my first dogs that were really mine to take care of on my own. Regretfully, I was not the best owner and made them stay outside in a fenced kennel with a dog house, even when it was cold out they stayed in the dog house. They did not get all the good care that they should have, I've learned a lot since then.
The day finally came that my business went downhill and I lost my car and my house and had to move back into the rental stage, and I just couldn't find a rental that would take dogs, I also couldn't find anyone who would take older dogs. It was desperate, and finally I had to take Princess and Charlie to the county place where they destroyed dogs. Not a pretty place. I left them there and went out to the car and started crying and cried all the way home. I have not stopped crying for Charlie and Princess since that time. It is the worst story of my life.
Even though I say I would rather sleep on a park bench now than to part with my dogs, it is still a memory that haunts me. Here's how I solved the situation. I got a trailer, a 35' Holiday Rambler that makes a comfortable home. You can pick up a used one of these for $10,000.00, less than the price of a modest car. THEN you OWN your OWN HOME. And that is the way I now have two dogs, and could have any dogs I want as long as I am a good owner and obey the trailer park rules which are just sensible rules. The rent for a trailer space is $375.00 per month, which includes cable TV, all yard work done for you, a nice private and peaceful place to live and, most importantly, there is no question that I can have my dogs.
Maybe you don't like this solution, but it works for me. Either I would have to BUY a place, which I can't afford really, or rent, with serious limits on having a pet. OR do what I did. To me it's perfect and I own my own home. Think about it, My trailer was paid off a long time ago, while you are paying it off just add the amount that you would need to make for a monthly payment for a normal house ($700-$1500 per mo.) to the real $375.00 month space rental at a high-quality RV park and you have a deal you can't match anywhere else.
It works for me,
