I have something that I really need to talk about. I want to know why it is so hard to get into an apartment if you have pets.

I know someone who is going through that very thing right now. He has looked up and down the Valley in search of a place that will house him and his miniature dog. The only places that seem to allow pets are outrageously priced.

Let's find a way to do something about it.
