Having a pet can seriously limit your apartment search — you can think you’ve found the perfect place, and then see the “no pets” disclaimer. But it doesn’t have to be that way. ABODO’s pet filter makes it easy to find apartments that would be the perfect fit for you and your pet. To make it even easier, we’ve rounded up a few beautiful examples of of pet-friendly apartments in Madison, ready and waiting for you and your fluffer or pupper to call home.
These spacious units between Monona Bay and Lake Wingra accept dogs and cats for a slight increase in your monthly rent: $50 for dogs, $40 for cats. And you’re just a block away from the Wingra Creek Bike Path, perfect for taking your dog out for a jog or just hopping on your bike for a spin (Wingra Point has free bike parking, too). There’s also a rooftop patio, a club room, and a fitness center.
You can’t beat the convenience of living in the same building as a grocery store. It’s near pretty much everything Madison has to offer — the Capitol Square and downtown, the Willy Street neighborhood, bike paths, and Breese Stevens Field, which hosts sports tournaments and concerts, for which Galaxie residents get special pre-sale ticket opportunities. Your pets will enjoy the floor-to-ceiling windows and view of the capitol building as much as you do, but the rooftop patio and gas grills are probably more in your court. Cats are just $15 extra per month, while dogs are $25 — a small price to pay to keep your furry family together.
On a quiet street in downtown Madison, 306 West puts you right near the action of Capitol Square, while ensuring you also have peace and quiet during a relaxing night at home. The modern luxury apartments are decked out with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, but they also welcome your dogs (for an extra $50 per month) and cats ($20), with a negotiable maximum of two pets. To make Fido feel at home, there’s even a dog grooming area onsite.
With beautiful hardwood floors, these apartments don’t look like they’re pet friendly — but they are. And as the name implies, the lake is just a block away, as is the waterfront Capital City Trail, and Brittingham Bay — a great spot to rent a kayak for an afternoon of recreation — is just a bit farther. Close to the Kohl Center, downtown, and Lake Monona, you’ll be well-positioned for anything.
