Pet-friendly rental housing is limited in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. We know that increasing the amount of pet-friendly rentals is a win for both renter and landlord. Understanding your rights and obligations when renting with pets is an important part of being a responsible pet caretaker. Making your properties pet-friendly is good for business.
Based off the great work of others across Canada, and local partnerships, our renter and landlord guides can help answer your questions and make Saskatoon more pet-inclusive!
