Pet Law

Ms. Collen will do everything possible to keep your pet, emotional support animal or service animal in your apartment. There are laws that protect tenants who live in apartments with no pet clauses. If you have an Emotional Support Animal or Service Animal, a landlord cannot force you to get rid of your animal. The size, breed, or weight of your assistance animal does not matter. If your dog bites or lunges at someone in your apartment building, you have a right to defend your dog.
