Did you know that pets can provide many benefits to their owners? From lower blood pressure, better mental and physical health, the odds are tilted in your favor when it comes to owning a pet. They provide friendship, encourage physical activity, with dog owners engaging in more physical activity than non-dog owners, and provide you with a sense of safety. Therefore, finding a pet-friendly independent living community can be very important for your happiness.
However, there are limitations that come with certain communities, therefore, it is vital to ask the right questions when considering the right community that is suitable for your needs.
What Kind of Pet Is Allowed?
When you think of pets, you tend to think of dogs and cats, however, there are a variety of animals like birds, ferrets, guinea pigs, or even rabbits that people like to keep as pets. It is important to enquire about the restrictions on the type and breed of pets in the living community. For some places, there might be a weight limit for dogs as well. Typically, local laws trump HUD rules on pets.
Do Team Members Help Take Care of Pets?
Ownership of pets often requires a certain level of maintenance, and it would be beneficial to you to enquire if team members would help the residents to take care of the pet’s needs and help the residents with any additional care that is required.
Are There Additional Fees for Having a Pet?
Though the accommodation might be pet-friendly, some communities do have extra charges for the maintenance and housing of the pet if you choose to bring it with you. It is vital to check these beforehand and ensure that you have sufficient funds to accommodate this.
Accessibility of Veterinary Care Services
It is important to enquire about the distance of the nearest veterinary care service from the living space, and if there are provisions for taking care of pets in your community if they were sick. The health of your little furkids is of the utmost importance at all times.
