Pet Friendly Landlords

Home » Other Services » Pet Friendly Landlords and Insurance 

As we often hear concerns about breed restrictions and homeowner’s insurance, we wanted to provide a few resources to help.

These insurance companies do not appear to have breed restrictions (though you should contact them to confirm):

  • State Farm

  • Farmers Insurance Group

  • United States Automobile Association (USAA)

  • Nationwide Insurance (may require Canine Good Citizen certification)

Winnebago County Animal Services provides this pet-friendly landlord list as a resource for Winnebago County residents.
