Letter: Vail nurse seeks pet-friendly home

Jacqueline Benavides
Avon, CO Colorado

I am a nurse working at Vail Valley Medical Center. I am fairly representative of working professionals in the area. I have been here for four months now and not only do I face the reality of the affordable housing shortage in the area but also the extreme shortage of pet-friendly housing. I am a responsible pet owner of a large-breed dog and an elderly cat who has successfully rented without incident in a managed apartment community in Durham, N.C. However, this area has to be the least pet-friendly area I have ever encountered. Renter’s insurance policies offer pet coverage, and has anyone heard of “pet rent” ” although I do believe my dog would do less damage to a residence than the average 21-year-old male.
