Animal-Friendly Houses

Many animals are surrendered to animal shelters each year because their guardians have difficulty finding rental properties for them. This list identifies apartments in the Metro-Milwaukee area that are “Animal-Friendly.” You can visit their website to view this list or have your property added. This list is prepared by the Wisconsin Humane Society to be used as a tool for tenants and property managers and is a free service.
