Hey landlords, listen up! If you’re not currently allowing residents to have pets, you may want to rethink your rules and regs. Results of a recent study show that 61% of U.S. families who rent their home have a pet or plan to have one in the near future. The L.A. Times found that in the Southland, that number rises to 70% of renters who are pet owners.

A recent survey found that 70% of pet owners said their choice of where to rent was influenced by nearby pet amenities, such as parks, veterinary facilities and pet stores.
