This report features the input of residents from rental-housing operators in the conventional multifamily and student-housing segments. 26% of pet owners surveyed adopted or bought a pet after February 2020. In addition to this skyrocketing pet ownership trend, 19% of respondents that currently do not own pets indicated that they intend to acquire a pet within the next year. That suggests that the increase of pet- owning residents will not subside when the pandemic ends.
This report also explores residents’ overall comfort with pets at their respective properties, examines wish lists for preferred pet amenities and outlines top concerns regarding pet behavior. It also addresses residents’ thoughts regarding breed and weight restrictions in addition to gauging their experiences with pets visiting their properties.
