To filter rental listings on Trulia.com by pet allowance, conduct a general apartment search based on a geographic location. Once it has returned a set of search results, expand all search filters and choose the desired pet allowance option from the list.
Trulia.com offers a wide range of filtering options for all rental searches, most of which can only be applied after conducting a general search. In terms of its pet filtering options, after starting an apartment search users can limit results based on the types of pets allowed by the landlord, such as large dogs, small dogs, cats or other pets. The site presents these options as check boxes, which means it is possible to choose more than one filtering option at a time. For example, if a user chooses both the "Cats" and "Small Dogs" options, all listings within the specified area that specifically allow both those types of pets are returned.
Other filtering options are focused around the size of the property, such as its square footage or number of rooms, as well as specific amenities such as appliances or on-site gyms. The site also filters results based on nearby schools or the commute time to specific locations.
