Websites with apartment listings, such as PadMapper.com and Craigslist.org, allow users to filter out listings that do not allow pets. The filters are generally only for cats and dogs. Apartment renters with less common pets may have to contact landlords directly.
PadMapper allows users to filter results for cat and dog friendly apartments by clicking Show More Filters in the search panel, and then selecting the checkboxes next to Cats and Dogs. Filtering results on Craigslist involves selecting the Cats Ok and Dogs Ok checkboxes to the left of the search results area. Apartment seekers should ask landlords about their pet policies before moving in, as the landlords may not have included the information when posting the rental ad.
