Cats and dogs welcome! Check out WAG The Pet Program and see what we do to take pet-friendly living to the next level.

We partnered with CORT Furniture to make it easier for you to actually live in our apartment homes even when you can't have your own furniture come along.

Awesome ain't easy.

Getting FIT is hard work. We can’t change that. But we are in your corner with the spaces and places, information and inspiration, and a little extra, to get the obstacles out of your way.

Up to scratch

You're not about to go where your four-legged compatriot can't. That means finding a home that welcomes all of you. We couldn't agree more, which is why we offer pet-friendly communities across the country and created WAG The Pet Program to take pet-friendly living to the next level.

Move with AvalonBay. Enjoy the perks.

Change is inevitable. Should it happen to your apartment needs, you’ll get to keep the standard of service you expect at any one of our communities, with additional perks to smooth your transition.
