This is a record for me. The most I've had before was 6:
"We have done rescue and are not getting anymore animals. We currently have 9 dogs, 6 of which are considered senior dogs and also 3 cats, 1 of which is a senior cat. All animals are house trained and very friendly. We are hoping to achieve our dream of moving out to the area but are not willing to re-home our animals that are our family to do so."
From our pre-screening questionnaire...oh and some of them are not neutered. --50.82.xxx.xx

My response (if I actually responded, which I wouldn't):
"I applaud your heart for animals. Best wishes achieving your dream of buying your own house. I hope your animal sons and daughters don't run up too many college loans."
And block number/email. NEXT! --173.20.xxx.xxx

I had a Section 8 applicant who owned three horses of her own and did horse rescue so told me that there would be as many as 6 horses on the property.
The most animals was 6 sheep, a turkey, three cats, a couple of chickens, and an old dog. That was not in an apartment building, but an appropriate living situation and done with permission. --98.146.xxx.xxx

Sometimes it is a very short step from animal rescuer to animal hoarder. I think your applicants have fallen off that cliff, WMH. --98.146.xxx.xxx

i don't like it when there are more animals than people. I am not renting a dog house. I have no idea who would rent to them but I suppose someone would... are you considering? And would they pay all the move in fees and pet rent? --173.108.xx.xx

MOG, Plenty, no way would I rent to them! As noted above, it sounds more like animal hoarding that rescuing. In fact, it sounds like a kennel and I'm not even sure if that's not against code? Also consider the EXPENSE!
And the ENTITLEMENT shown in her phrasing!
"There are more animals than people." That is a good rule of thumb and I think I am going to adopt it going forward, although a cat and a dog may be allowed. --50.82.xxx.xx

Somebody will rent to them and even "work" with them on the security because you know we have so many expenses with the animals --72.231.xxx.xxx

Being on section 8 AND owing horses is an oxymoron. If you can't pay your rent you can't afford a freakin' horse.
I am a horse owner. Horses are money pits and anyone who can't afford rent should not own a horse nor claim to be a horse rescue. --64.27.xxx.xxx

Animal rescue is a quick sand, no way to get out and no way to say no to the next animal in dire need of rescue. They can rescue all the animals they want but not on your property or on any property they are renting. --73.227.xxx.xxx

Iím sorry but what on earth are these people thinking. They clearly canít afford a house, they are going to be renters for at least a couple more years, why the hell would they have 9 dogs and 3 cats???? I love dogs, I have 3, but when I was renting an apartment I had none, because pets werenít allowed in my apartment. And I didnít even think of getting 1 till I owned my own home because I knew pet friendly apartments are hard to find. I think if I even responded Iíd just reply sorry you have to many animals. Iím sure there use to hearing it. --71.248.xxx.xxx

I think our max has been 5 huskies, a high energy breed.
I just approved an application with 3 Pomeranians and a cat. They are willing to pay
$600 No-Refundable Animal Registration Fee (4 x $150)
+140 per month animal rent (4 x $35)
=$2280 in the first year.
The house is new to us and still has so-so carpet which already has light animal odor. I figure they will pay for the new flooring I install when they move out.
We'll see if they sign.

I have a farm they can rent. The house is falling apart so animals don't matter. They need a farm with a barn.
What are they trying to rent?
That would be a lot of damage to a place. --73.120.xx.xxx

Shelly,i bought a house once,the tenant was on Section 8,rescuer and on fire dept so everyone in town thought she was wonderful,i saw her a bit differently.She had horses elsewhere but at my house she had snakes,rats,rabbits,farrets,i bet 50 animals in an apt but it was clean and no odor.She raised cockroaches to feed to something and I made her put in writing that she was responsible if the building had a roach infestation and she wanted to argue that she was only responsible if they were german roaches because that is what she raised and common roaches were different,i said no way sign or move,she signed.She also drove a nicer truck than I dd. --72.231.xxx.xxx
