  1. Access to a nearby vet.
    Having a vet clinic close by for your pet is a huge advantage, making it easier for both of you when the time comes for your pet’s checkups. Even if there are none close, knowing where the locations of the nearest clinics is crucial.

  2. A safe, well-lit place to walk your pet if it needs to go out
    Midnight potty breaks happen. Knowing there are well-lit areas where you can take your pet after dark will give you both peace of mind.

  3. Are there any restrictions on the pet's type, weight, size, breed and on the number of pets allowed?
    Check to ensure your unique pet will be welcome and feel at home.

  4. A suite large enough for you and your pet and its belongings
    Crates, bowls, toys and treats — there’s a lot of things your pet needs to stay healthy and well. Ask for a floor plan of your new suite to make sure there will be room for everything.

  5. A residence in a neighbourhood suitable for walks and one with nearby parks
    If you have a dog or an adventurous pet, you know how important enjoying the fresh air together is. Make sure there are places close by you’d both love to visit and explore!

  6. The approval of other pet owners in your chosen retirement home
    When you tour, be sure to talk to other pet owners and ask them about their experience. These testimonials should give you an accurate picture of what life is like in a retirement home with your furry or feathered friend.

Looking out for these six things while on your tour will help ensure that you and your pet find your next perfect home.
