Finding Pet-Friendly Housing

If you'll be PCSing to Hawaii with your pet and considering living off base, you'll want to be sure that you do homework before purchasing or renting a condominium. 

Locations teamed up with the Hawaiian Humane Society to provide Oahu pet owners a go-to resource for pet-friendly condos. Moving to or around Oahu with pets can be a challenge. Even though more than 60% of Oahu residents own pets, many buildings are not pet friendly.

What Makes a Condo Pet Friendly?

It's important to note that there's a difference between buildings that merely allow pets and those that are designated as pet-friendly. A pet-friendly building will allow most types of pets, and will have building rules and amenities to make pets and their owners comfortable. A building that allows pets, but is not pet friendly, will allow pets inside but will have building rules that may include:

Restrictions on Breed, Size or Number of Pets Allowed 

  • Some buildings won't allow pets heavier than 10 lbs.  
  • Many buildings will not allow pit bulls or other breeds that have been deemed "dangerous" 
  • Some buildings may allow only one pet 

Condominium Rules and Regulations

  • Some buildings may have rules such as, "Dogs may not walk on lobby floors" to avoid owners of larger breeds of dogs.
  • Some buildings may allow pets to use the service elevator only. 

Be sure to do your research well in advance of your PCS relocation, and read about the animal quarantine process.
