This one's for the renters that won't even consider a place that won't let them bring their dog or cat. We know that when City Market at O (shown above) is complete, that there will be a rooftop dog park and pet grooming station, but until that day, there are other pet-friendly options for D.C. renters. Let us know if we missed anything and we'll be sure to add it in.
Building: AVA H Street
Rent: $1935/month for a one bedroom (plus the pet fee).
AVA is not only one of the more affordable luxury apartments on H Street, but they're amenable to the idea of multiple pets. There are no amenities specific to pampering your dogs, but who's to say they won't enjoy the courtyard or the chill room?
Building: Camden Roosevelt
Address: 2101 16th Street NW
Rent: $1800/month for a studio (plus the cat fee)
If you're a dog owner, this isn't the place for you, but cats are welcome and they're fine with having up to two. Plus, if you end up in a unit with a built-in bookshelf, that's an ultimate cat perching place!
Building: 1210 Mass Apartments
Address: 1210 Massachusetts Avenue NW
Rent: $2175/month for a one bedroom
Not only is this building friendly, but for awhile, one dog owning resident had a business based out of this apartment building where he walked the neighbors' dogs. Good way to get to know the other people in the building!
Building: Flats 130 at Constitution Square
Address: 130 M Street NE
Rent: $1817/month for a studio
This place in NoMa actually advertises a dog park amongst their amenities. Some people on Yelp complain about whether the apartment (or rather, the pet owners) do the best job of cleaning up after their dogs.
Building: The Diplomat
Address: 2420 16th Street, NW
Rent: Efficiency from $1430/month
One of the great things about the Diplomat is that the pet fee is a one time $100 deposit per animal. This isn't an ongoing monthly thing that will need to be taken out of your budget. That said, if you have a larger dog, this is not the place for you.
Building: Park Place
Address: 850 Quincy Street NW
The rooftop is landscaped more for games of bocce than for running dogs, but the place does allow dogs. Apparently, owning one is also the best course to meeting someone in this building.
