Pet Policies

Residents of Borror Properties, including those who live in the developer’s apartments and senior living facilities throughout Central Ohio, are all welcome to own a pet. In fact, the renowned developer offers a variety of perks to those residents who have a four-legged friend (or two). 

Borror has always been pet friendly in the homes they rent, but as the pet population has increased in recent years, Borror has loosened weight restrictions, made every apartment pet-friendly, and added more events for pets.

In their market apartments, 50 percent of Borror residents own at least one pet, while ten percent have two. In their senior living facilities, an estimated 15 percent own a pet. 

Apartment residents are invited to have up to two pets with no weight restrictions. Pet owners are charged a $300 deposit and a monthly pet fee between $25 to $40 per month. At Borror’s senior living facilities, residents can live with one pet weighing up to 80 pounds and only pay a $300 pet deposit (no pet rent).

When it comes to pet perks, Borror offers a variety of amenities. Several of the company’s apartments offer dog parks and pet waste stations with bag dispensers meant to keep living spaces clean for non-pet and pet owners alike. They also host many events for residents and their pets including an end-of-summer pool party for dogs and a pet costume contest at Halloween. 

A Pet-Friendly Workplace

In addition to their accommodating pet-friendly policies, amenities and events for residents, Borror also offers a pet-friendly benefit to their employees: staff can bring their dogs to the office every Friday. This past June, they hosted a pet in the office every day! The company established this policy because research shows that dog-friendly work environments can foster a healthy company culture and allow employees to better connect, which Borror has found to be true. 

“Pre-planning is required, as team members must schedule their pet to join in the fun on Friday,” said Lori Steiner, President and COO at Borror. “The overall affect is a more relaxed and fun workplace. Everyone looks forward to pet Fridays.”
