Pet & Animal Policies

A welcoming and safe environment is paramount to all of our residents which is why AMG is pet friendly!  The process for any resident or applicant who wishes to keep a pet or animal begins here so please find the category below that best describes you to get started

  • Household Pets

    This is a required application process for anyone that owns a household pet. This includes dogs and cats only at this time. All others which might include pets that live in cages such as birds, hamsters, rabbits, snakes or fish tanks (because of the contained water) must email info@amghousing.com to request permission prior to bringing them into premises.

  • Assistance Animals

    This is a required review process for anyone with a disability and disability-related need for an assistance animal. This process provides a HIPAA compliant and secure way of submitting a reasonable accommodation request for an assistance animal (service animals, emotional support animals, companion animals, etc.) that will be reviewed by a third-party legal review team to ensure the accommodation request meets HUD’s Fair Housing Act guidelines. There is no cost ($0) to you to submit an accommodation request. Please make sure you are aware of your State’s laws, if any, for submitting a fraudulent accommodation request

* NOTICE TO PET AND ANIMAL OWNING RESIDENTS & APPLICANTS: The screening process must be completed.
