I moved into my apartment about a month ago coming from a really bad living situation. Needless to say I was estatic when we got approved. When my best friend and my now roomate and I were about to fill out the application I saw that it said no pets. We were about to walk out and go look for another apartment when the manager told us to just say our animals are companion animals and explained that there is a law that requires them to let us keep our pets.
Now, almost a month later I get a note on the door that says our animals need to be removed by two weeks or our rental agreement will be terminated. The manager that had told us we can keep our pets is now no longer working here.
I went and talked to another lady that works here and she told me that we were told from the beginning that we needed to have a note from a doctor saying our animals our companion animals, which is completley untrue. We do need to get the note now because we are in fear of being evicted. My four year old is in tears all the time that we might have to get rid of our dog. I need to know how easy it is saying that I have a companion animal from a doctor. I feel like we have been set up for failure because we would have never filled out an appliction and moved in if the manager hadn't told me the animals wouldnt be a problem.
This dog has been with me through battles of depression and I can't imagine getting rid of him but I am no longer seeing a psychiatrist.
