Sixty-seven percent of U.S. households, or about 85 million families, own a pet, according to the 2019-2020 National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA). This is up from 56 percent of U.S. households in 1988, the first year the survey was conducted. It’s paws-itively clear, dogs, cats, birds, turtles, rabbits, fish, and other pets continue to make their way into the hearts and doors of our households!
For many of us, our pets are more than animals; they are part of the family! If your home isn’t truly home without your furry, feathered, and finned family members, pet-friendly rentals are the solution for accommodating the entire family! At Kong Management Group, your pets are welcome to stay with you at our properties, which are located in the pet-friendly areas of Tampa Bay and Hallandale Beach, Florida.
In fact, Honest Paws, a pet food company, recently ranked Tampa as the #1 Best U.S. City to be a Dog! The ranking was based on several factors, including number of dog parks, veterinarians, pet-friendly beaches, pet-friendly restaurants and breweries, hiking trails, and more. In a city of just over 385,000, Tampa offers more pet-friendly rentals per capita than other cities, in addition to a high number of pet-friendly activities.
Other Florida cities ranked in Honest Paws’ top 10 were Orlando and Miami. That’s good news if you’re renting from Kong Management Group, with our Hallandale Beach properties located just north of Miami!
Kong Management Group offers a wide array of rental housing, including single-family homes, townhouses, condos, and recreational vehicle/mobile home parks. Our goal is to create a quality living experience for everyone – including the family pet! As a family-owned and operated business, personal touches, attention to detail, and exemplary customer care are the standard at Kong Management Group.
Our pet-friendly listings provide plenty of space so your whole family can stay in comfort. We require a pet-deposit when you book your rental. We also make reasonable accommodation to allow pets who serve as assistance animals, which includes animals who provide emotional support.
Renting a single-family home – either for a family vacation or as a permanent residence – offers so much more space and comfort than a hotel, especially when you’re staying with pets and kids. No one wants to be stuck in a single room all day and night! At a rental home, every member of the family has the room to relax and there’s more room for their daily supplies, too!
Many of our properties feature fenced yards, giving your four-legged friends a safe place to play. We do ask that you don’t leave your pet unattended and keep them on a leash when outside of the fence. Of course, we also ask pet owners to pick up any droppings, bag them, and then put them in the trash – that’s just being a good neighbor!
