Pet Screening


We love pets and welcome them to most of our properties! However, pets have the potential to cause huge amounts of property damage and significantly increase liability for the property owner. Therefore, the privilege of housing a pet at one of our properties comes with extra responsibilities and obligations.

These terms are largely based on the comfort level of the property owner and the restrictions they decide for a pet to be considered. Compass requires every animal to go through our professional screening process. The fee for this is $20.00 for the first pet profile and $15.00 for each additional pet in your profile. These application fees are paid directly to our third-party vendor conducting the pet screening.

This screening is part of our application process and any application received must complete this in order to move forward with the rental application. All applicants must fill out an application on, whether you have a pet or not. Failure to comply may result in the denial of your application.


It is the sole obligation of the applicant to get their pet approved prior to submitting the rental application. Please be prepared to submit a photo along with your request for approval. Non-qualifying pets may result in denial of the rental application.

Sadly, we are unable to rent to breeds that are commonly labeled as "aggressive" by the insurance companies. We cannot rent to mixes of these breeds. If you have a mixed breed dog and not sure what the cross is, but he/she really looks like a pit bull, we will err on the side of caution and deny the pet.

We Trust Your Best Friend

  • Akita
  • Malamute
  • American Bull Terrier / American Bulldog
  • American Staffordshire Terrier
  • Chow
  • Coyotes and Wild Dogs
  • Doberman Pinscher
  • German Shepherd
  • Hybrid and Purebred Wolves

  • Pit Bull

Reptiles/Snakes/Exotic Animals are also pets we do not allow.


Consideration to Approve

The overall strength of your qualifications weighs heavily on the consideration to approve your pet, as does the age, weight and breed of the pet. The pet application must be completed.

At Compass Property Management Group, we conduct at least one pet inspection on pet approved properties per year. The fee is $125.00 per inspection, due at the time of lease signing. 

Service/Emotional Support Animals

We always accept service animals and emotional support animals with proper documentation. Service/Emotional support animals are not subject to additional deposit, pet acceptance fee, or pet inspection fee. Once your application is approved, we will provide the request for reasonable accommodation and verification of disability and need.

We Are Pet Friendly

We're renters who have and love pets too! We understand how a pet is not just a pet, but also part of your family. When you find a home with the Compass Property Management Group, you find a home for your fur friend as well.

We'll do whatever it takes to connect you with the rental home that's the right fit for your needs as a renter with pets.
