What experience, if any have you all had with finding out that tenants have pets and that they are going to rehome them In order to move. I had a person come by to look at a room the other day. Early 40s, educated but not with lots of money however, one of my rooms would suit him.

He sent his application in right away, the first thing I did was call his present landlord. She gave him a good report, he paid rent, was no problem but she did mention he had two cats. I told her that my rooms were no pets.

I called him the next day and ask him about his two cats. He asked me how I found out and I told him that his present landlord told me but that she did give him a good report on being a good tenant.

He then told me he was looking to rehome the cats. He had them for about a year and he couldnít afford to live where he was and wanted to find them good homes so that he could do what he needed to do to stay afloat financially.

I told him I understood. I was not being judgmental at all and I can imagine itís very difficult to rehome your fur babies.

He then went on to say that he had a couple of new job applications out there where he would make more money, and if they worked out he would stay in his present apartment however, he said he would let me know. I am definitely not one to judge and I know that people have certain situations in their life that they have to deal with in their own way.

Pet people will lie to do anything for their pet. Donít trust them. --99.23.xxx.x

The majority will lie and never re-home their pet, who will sudden become a comfort animal and has the right to stay put! --47.156.xx.xx

Good thing this applicant screened themselves with a new job, agreed animal owners have a special way of keeping animals - it is a 500bux a day addition in my lease. --76.190.xxx.xxx

I'M generally not one for more laws, BUT I think there needs to be some type of law that says any Dr can write a note calling a pet a comfort animal. I saw a young lady that was taking a large turkey on a plane, stating she had a Drs note that it was such, and she needed to travel with it.

So a dentist and any Dr can write these notes without any tests/justification of why they really need it.

It's no skin off the Drs nose just to write these. If it required testing, a real criterion of need and paperwork for the justification they might not randomly say "yeah,..here's your note" which would take seconds to do.

Also, there should be a place where you can check on service animals. Right now you can pay a fee and get a phony "certificate" that your animal (esp dogs) that it is indeed a service animal and get a vest that shows it, so all can see when you walk into a store etc.

What store owner or clear would ever ask/challenge if it was real? --66.30.xx.xxx

As suspected that the rehoming was for a few days then they the pets would be "rehomed" back with the original owner, in my place. --172.56.xx.xx

Either they lie and keep the pet or they really rehome the pet which makes them too irresponsible for me.

I accept dogs that are well trained and well cared for and that the tenants treat them like a member of the family. No disposable pets in my rentals. I can't stop people from adopting pets that they won't make a commitment to, but they can't do it in my house.

I no longer take cats and I don't accept applicants who tell me they will get rid of their cat. --76.178.xxx.xxx

I agree with everyone that he will not find another home for them. If he was serious, he would have already done it/taken them to a shelter. Him saying "I will let you know" means "You caught me not disclosing my pets, o I can no longer sneak them in, so I'm no longer interested in your place". Hopefully, he'll move on. --71.82.xxx.xxx
