Pet-friendly frequently asked questions

Do you allow pets?

Yes – we love your pets and your pets are going to love your new home, yard and neighborhood. All pets are subject to approval, of course.  

Do I need to register my pet?

Yes, up to 3 cats and dogs are welcome with a $325 initial fee per pet (or deposit, depending on local laws) and up to $40 additional monthly pet rent for each pet as permitted by applicable law. Fees and service availability may vary by location or home. Pet fees and/or deposits and pet rent will be charged for dogs and cats only. Other animal types are welcome without a fee or pet rent, subject to Invitation Homes’ animal restrictions. 

Fees, deposits, pet rent, and additional insurance are not required for authorized service, assistance, or companion animals. As a safety precaution, Invitation Homes does not accept American Pit Bull Terriers, Rottweilers, Staffordshire Terriers, or any dog that is a mix of these breeds – among other restricted breeds. For more information on restricted breeds, read our qualification requirements .

What are Invitation Homes' dog breed restrictions?

Restricted dog breeds include American Pit Bull Terriers, Rottweilers, Staffordshire Terriers, and any dog that has a percentage or mix of any of those breeds. Any canines other than domestic dogs are not permitted, such as wolves, coyotes, dingoes, jackals, etc., along with any canine or wolf hybrids. For example, a Husky Wolf or Timber Wolf mix is not permitted. 

What documentation is required to request my pet be treated as a service animal?

Before you move in, you must notify us that you are bringing a service animal through our 3rd party pet screening and review process. Next, fill out the Invitation Homes Reasonable Accommodation/Modification Request Form and Disability Verification Form and take the Disability Verification Form to your healthcare provider to verify the statements at the end of the form. Invitation Homes may request additional information to evaluate the request. 

Where can I access the Invitation Homes Reasonable Accommodation/Modification Request Form?

We will send the Reasonable Accommodation/Modification Request Form to applicants who disclose their ownership of a service animal in their application.  

Why is there a limit on the number of pets per home?

Our policy is to allow no more than 3 pets inside homes that allow animals. Read more about our pet requirements.  

Do you have recommendations for who to get Dog Bite Insurance from?

Invitation Homes recommends residents use ResidentShield, our preferred renters insurance provider. Generally, dog bites are covered in a renters insurance policy. If your carrier excludes coverage for any dog at the residence, you must obtain a separate, stand-alone dog bite liability insurance policy with at least $100,000 in liability coverage for each excluded dog. Read more on our Renters insurance page.   

Am I required to make a PetScreening account to be approved for a lease?

We require the primary leaseholder on applications submitted in Atlanta, North and South Carolina, and South Florida to create a pet screening account.
