A happy dog chasing his tail, a sweet snuggly cat, or a chameleon changing colors—pets make life so rich and fun! We are proud to be a pet-friendly apartment community so our residents can enjoy the benefits of pet ownership. Read on to learn more about why we love pets, our regulations, and where to take your pets when living at Lantern Bay Apartment Homes.

Why We Love Pets

Happiness is a cute pet! Plus, there are scientifically proven health benefits of pet ownership. Here are a few that the Ohio State University Veterinary Medical Center identified:

  • Buffering stress
  • Reducing heart rate
  • Reducing blood pressure
  • Providing social support
  • Helping owners stay in shape
  • Preventing certain illnesses

Pets can also have amazing benefits for children specifically, including the following:

  • Cognitive stimulation
  • Improved behavior
  • Heightened empathy
  • Increased immunity
  • Lower anxiety levels

Regulations for Our Community’s Pets

Here are some things to keep in mind before bringing home a pet to your Lantern Bay apartment:

  • There is a 50-pound weight limit, and we have breed restrictions due to size and behavior traits.
  • Cats are allowed.
  • Hamsters, guinea pigs, birds, reptiles, and any other small pets must be caged and kept in a sanitary condition.
  • Additional or other pets must be approved by our management team. Only authorized pets with the owner’s approval are allowed on the premises.

While outside of your apartment with your dog, we ask that you keep your dog on a leash. We also have Pet Waste Stations located throughout the property, making it easy to pick up after your pet!

Where to Take Your Furry Friend to Stretch Their Legs

We love our on-site dog park! It’s perfect for your dog to play and meet other furry friends. There are also great dog parks nearby, like the Olive Hills Dog Park just 10 minutes away in Anaheim, which has a walking path and agility equipment.

We are so happy when our residents have pets that help make their lives happier! Call us today if you have any questions about keeping a pet at Lantern Bay Apartments.
