The Perks of Living with Pets

Each of our White Oak Communities allows pets for a paw-esome lifestyle. Vista at White Oak, Montgomery White Oak, and Montgomery at Paint Branch all allow cats and small dogs. Yorkshire Apartments welcomes your feline friend. 

Recent news reported that dogs owners live longer as the companionship leads to a healthier lifestyle. Pets have been known to help with depression and anxiety as well. 


A big yard isn’t needed to keep a dog happy. There are many exercises and activities to help your dog stay entertained while living in an apartment. Our White Oak Communities offer walking paths and open fields which are perfect for your pups to get out and play.

To stay connected with your fur-babies during the day, the Furbo Camera works via a phone app and will dispense a treat to your very good boy or girl. You may also set up home surveillance equipment to see what he is up to throughout the day. Some systems have sound, so you can tell him to “get off the couch” if need be.

Like to bake? Homemade treats are a healthy, fun way to show your love. They make great gifts, too, for the other canines and felines in your life. Making homemade toys is also a crafty way to spend the colder winter months.

Don’t have a pet? The Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center has many looking for a home. Check them out to adopt your new best friend and help make your apartment feel like a home.
