Each home owner that we represent has the right to decide if they will accept animals. Each Animal-Friendly home is different and may have some limitations based on the type of animal, the size of animal (height and weight) and how many are acceptable. Please make sure that you have completed the appropriate steps to have your animal approved.
To have an animal approved, please:
- Complete a “Request for an Animal Form” available upon request.
- Pay a non-refundable animal application fee of $100 to PPM
- Provide a description of your animal along with a picture
- Provide a certificate to verify that your animal has been spayed or neutered (dogs and cats)
- Provide proof of up to date inoculations required by law
A separate Request must be made for each Animal.
PPM will provide you with written documentation once the application has been reviewed and approved. No animal shall be in the home without the Approval letter.
ANIMAL OWNERSHIP RULES:
- Only an approved animal with written documentation from PPM will be allowed on the premises. No substitutions. If you change animals, you must submit a new animal application and be approved. Prior approval does not guarantee a new approval. No Guest animals allowed.
