This happened to our family when we were temporarily renting. The dog (illegal
companion) upstairs howled day and night. The manager refused to do anything
about it. Then, there was the dog crap all over the lawn and sidewalks. The
dogs ran free outside. It was a challenge to even get to our car. Yes, we
called the police. We were so glad to leave that place.
Good luck with the no animals in rentals, My wife and I moved into a apartments
that do not allow pets, but thanks to some companion animal law our landlord is
forced to allow them now. The sad thing is they are supposed to be for people
with health issues but some of our neighbors have admitted they lied and got
their doctor to sign a note saying they need an animal for depression just to
get a pet. I wonder What about my rights to rent somewhere animal free as well
as the landlords rights?
