15 Pet-Friendly Apartment Complexes in Greater Boston

View as Map

Got a dog? Got a big dog? Little cat? (Maybe one that looks like this?) Wondering where you can rent in the Greater Boston area? Wonder no more! As part of Renters Week 2013, we've combed the rigamarole of various apartment communities region-wide and picked 15 that allow Fido and Snookums to bunk with you. Be warned: Some allow pets for a price and some also have weight restrictions. But all are open to the idea of man's best friend et al.
