According to the Humane Society, 72% of all rental households in America have a pet. And, according to, 52% of all households in Seattle have a dog and “four-legged pets outnumber babies.”

Allowing pets on a case-by-case basis not only greatly increases the potential tenant base, it also gives the owner more control over which pet(s) will occupy the property. Saying no to all pets increases the chance that a tenant will try to sneak an animal onto the property.  If the landlord indicates a willingness to consider pets, tenants are more likely to be honest and then the landlord can say yes or no based on whether the animal has been fixed as well as the size, age, number and breed.A Kitten
