Colorado Proposal Would Limit Renters’ Pet Fees

Pet rent would be limited to $35 per month or 1.5% of the owner’s monthly rent.




Colorado is considering legislation to limit extra fees for renters who have pets.

House Bill 1068 passed in the legislature and is headed to the governor’s signature for final approval, Colorado Politics reports.

Among the bill’s provisions:

  • Keep pet rent to $35 per month or 1.5% of the owner’s monthly rent, whichever is more.
  • Limit pet deposits to $300 beyond the existing security deposit.
  • Require that pet deposits be refundable.

Landlords would still be able to prohibit pets or impose breed restrictions.

The bill would also forbid restrictions on dog breeds for homeowner’s insurance purposes.

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
