Dog friendly apartments in Pittsburgh

Dog owners looking for a pet friendly apartment in Pittsburgh will be happy to know that dogs are now welcome at another Prudential Realty Community: Alvern Gardens Apartments in Castle Shannon.

Certain areas in the Alvern Gardens complex are opening their doors and ample green spaces to dogs 40 lbs and smaller. There are no breed restrictions (other than the limitation that the breed cannot exceed 40 lbs maximum size). Mixed breeds are also welcome as long as they are 40 lbs or smaller.

Dogs 40 lbs and under are now welcome at Alvern Gardens Apartments in the South Hills of Pittsburgh.

Owners must provide paperwork from the vet indicating that the dog is spayed/neutered and all its vaccinations are up-to-date. The dog must also be properly licensed and wear its license at all times. Owners must also provide proof of liability insurance covering any injuries or damages that might be caused by the dog.

Residents are allowed to have up to 2 pets in their apartment: up to 2 cats or 1 cat and 1 dog. Only 1 dog is allowed per apartment.

The cost of keeping a pet at Alvern Gardens is more affordable than at many other apartment communities. The security deposit is $200 per pet, and the monthly fees are as follows: $15 per cat, $30 for a dog, and $45 for 1 cat and 1 dog.

Here are some of the additional guidelines of keeping a pet at Alvern Gardens:

  • Flea and tick medication must be kept up-to-date
  • Animals must be in a cage or on a leash and attended at all times that they are outside the owner’s apartment (in hallways, outside on the property)
  • Animals are not allowed in common areas of the building (laundry rooms and other basement spaces)
  • Owners must promptly clean up all their animal’s waste

Alvern Gardens is close to South Park, where there are walking trails as well as a dog park for pups (and their parents) to get their exercise.

Anyone interested in renting a dog friendly apartment in the South Hills of Pittsburgh may contact Alvern Gardens at alverngardens@yahoo.com or 412-561-4663.
