Volusia and Brevard county apartments aren't usually likely to give a flat out no to all pets. You'll find that in most apartments in the area birds, fish, small reptiles, and other small animals such as hamsters and gerbils are allowed to live right alongside you in your apartment. Usually these types of pets don't require you to pay any “pet deposit” in case of damage to your apartment. But always make sure you are entirely knowledgeable of your lease and any extra fees your pet may impose so you don't accidentally break any leasing agreements! As for keeping your small pets happy in your apartments, it's not hard at all. These small animals don't require much room to roam and therefore are the perfect companions for an apartment. All you have to do is give them lots of love, food, and attention and they should live a long and happy life with you!

Many apartments near Volusia and Brevard county accept cats as well. However, you'll find that “pet deposits” are a little more common when living with a cat because cats love to scratch and tear things up like furniture and walls when they get bored. As always, make sure with your landlord that cats are okay for your apartment but other than that it's fairly easy to live a happy life with your cat. Just make sure you give them attention, open space to roam, food, treats, and maybe a few play toys. Cats are usually pretty self sufficient animals and won't require too much extra care when living in your apartment.

As far as dogs go you'll find quite a few Brevard and Volusia county apartments accept them. However you'll often find weight and breed restrictions in place with dogs so make sure you're knowledgeable of all the rules before moving your pooch in. If your dog is used to living in a house with a front and back yard then keeping them happy in your apartment is going to require a slight change in some areas, but it won't require too much effort to keep your dog satisfied. When you're gone consider leaving out a bin of toys for them to play with and leaving as many doors open in your apartment so they have plenty of space to roam. It's also of the utmost importance that you keep your dog well exercised when living in an apartment. The more exercise they get the less room they have for boredom and unhappiness. As always, make sure you give them plenty of love and affection.

Living with pets in your Brevard or Volusia county apartment doesn't have to be a struggle and you'll find that many apartments in the community are extremely pet friendly.
