Pets are only allowed in certain units within specific HUH properties, and there are restrictions on the number, type, breed, and weight of permitted pets. You will need to complete a Pet Authorization and Policies Rider before you move in. (You can view a sample policy rider here.) All dogs must be vaccinated for rabies and licensed yearly. Exceptions to the HUH pet policies may be granted only on the basis of an approved eligible reasonable accommodation.
