We love pets!! Most of us at Boardwalk Realty & Development have them. Sadly, we have found that a few dog owners do not properly tend to these animals. We have experienced past problems with flea infestation, soiled carpets (as well as other dog-related damages), odors that cannot be removed, and owners that allow their dogs to use the common areas as litter boxes but do not clean up after their pets. Before implementing our current pet policy (one dog per unit and no larger than 25 pounds) we found residents that were keeping several dogs and some that even brought vicious breeds to the properties. We also experienced irresponsible pet owners who leave their dogs unattended for several weeks at a time or owners that permit dogs to bark through the night thereby disturbing their neighbors. We have even had residents that expect us to find dogs that have Kennel Cough and have infected other dogs. Managing these issues became overwhelming and detracted from our efforts to provide our residents with great places to live. We opted to provide great places for our residents to live instead of managing dog problems caused by a handful of irresponsible dog owners. We work very hard to provide our residents with clean, quiet, comfortable and well-maintained residences as well-kept common areas but have found that dogs, ferrets, lizards, and rodents of any kind are not compatible with our properties and our goal of providing great places and great communities for our residents. We are unable to keep the properties in the kind of condition that we can be proud of when large dogs, lizards, rodents, or ferrets are present. We have now limited pets to either one cat or one dog per household that is no larger than 25 pounds when fully grown. Cats and dogs are permitted at all of the properties except Breezin, Poseidon, and Thalassa. The refundable pet deposit for dogs is $500 and $30 per month for per rent. The refundable pet deposit for cats is $300 plus pet rent of $25 per month. Complaints from neighbors about ill-behaved dogs, more than 1-dog per household, excessive barking, dogs that attack other pets or people, dogs using the property as a litter box, and dogs damaging the property will have to be removed immediately. Fish and birds are happily accepted and there is no deposit for them.
