Looking for pet-friendly housing in Omaha?

By on February 20, 2019

It’s certainly a difficult job looking for a new place to live, especially if you’re needing a place that’s pet-friendly. Luckily for our readers, Rent.com has tipped up off to a list of ten places that rank highly (according to its scoring system) for pet-friendliness.

The methodology behind the lists involves a review of all multifamily apartment complexes in Omaha with active listings on ApartmentGuide.com and rent.com. They were rated them on the number of pet-related facilities within a half-mile radius. An exponentially decreasing scale was used based on distance from the apartment. For instance, pet stores across the street would score higher than veterinarians a quarter-mile away.

Take a look at the list below and let us know if your rental is as pet-friendly as these on our Facebook page!
