In our town the average pet deposit is $400, and that is it.
I would question if charging pet rent is a violation of housing authority or state statutes on landlord and tenant rights? I know they pulled a good one and tried to say in the newspaper no children and that got called before the state, so I wonder if pets is an exception.

Nowadays almost every apartment complex is making owners pay the animal deposit PLUS animal rent. I think it is ridiculous myself. An animal is not a person and they dont have jobs. It is not ethical or right to make owners pay their rent unless the dog has issues with indoors. In your case though if your dog is pretty heavy you might want to consider maybe something else that allows owners to keep their animals without paying such fees, like a townhouse.
