Local restrictions and regulations for pet friendly apartments
While we have our own pet friendly apartment policies, don’t forget you’ll need to follow local ordinances with regards to number of pets allowed and annual licensing.
In Eau Claire, you may only have a maximum of three dogs and/or four cats within your home, up to a maximum of five total animals as of current city ordinance. More information on those policies and fees is available by clicking here.
Similar to Eau Claire, Menomonie allows a maximum of three dogs per household. For information on their pet policies, please visit their website.
Chippewa Falls is slightly more restrictive, and limits the total number of pets – even in a pet friendly apartment like Park West – to just three per household or apartment. Click here to access their current regulations and fee schedule.
Does Rooney Property Management require additional pet fees and pet deposit?
While we encourage pet ownership and work hard to create pet friendly apartments for our amazing tenants, we do require some additional fees in order to account for the incidental damage and cleaning required in lieu of an additional “pet rent” for our tenants. These fees are based on national averages and guidelines you would expect to see from any pet friendly apartment for rent.
There is a weight-based fee of either a $300 first year fee for small and medium sized animals, or $600 for large animals for the first year. This pet fee is non refundable. We do not have a weight limit for pets allowed.
Upon renewal, you’re eligible for a $300 renewal pet rent regardless of your initial pet deposit fee. This recurring pet fee is only paid once per year, and is not part of your monthly regular rent. No additional pet deposits are required.
At the end of your time living at Rooney Property Management, we require an additional charge from your security deposit for professional cleaning and repair, with no liability limit. As the owner, you’re responsible for any property damage repair, cleaning, deodorization, flea removal, and personal injury caused by your pets.
Some Rooney apartments use DNA tracking due to frequent defecation in common areas, and may have an additional pet fee for us to register your pet, as well as fines if your pet waste is found and identified after being sent in for testing.
Contact a Rooney property manager for the most up to date information on our pet fees and pet deposit policies and for the pet addendum for our tenants.
Can I qualify for a service animal?
Yes, our pet friendly apartments do not require additional fees for registered service animals. If you are renting and have a service animal, please speak with our property managers so we may better assist you in finding pet friendly apartments for rent that waives the otherwise-required pet deposits.
