Residents must first visit their housing provider's unique PetScreening link. Then, select their profile type, create an account and complete their profile. Upon activation, profiles are shared automatically with the resident's housing provider.
PetScreening is a third-party service utilized by housing providers and property managers to screen household pets, validate reasonable accommodation requests for assistance animals (Service/ESA/Companion) and confirm every resident understands their pet policies. To facilitate the screening and validation process, PetScreening offers residents three profile types to choose from.
The Pet Profile provides residents a secure place to store all the important information about their pets. Pet Profiles can easily be shared with pet service providers such as landlords, property managers, veterinarians, animal hospitals, pet sitters and doggie daycares.
There is no charge for submitting a reasonable accommodation request for an assistance animal. Each request is reviewed by our legal review team per the FHAct guidelines. It is the residents' responsibility to be aware of their state’s statutes or local ordinances, if any, for criminal offenses and/or penalties for committing assistance animal fraud.
With the No Pets or Animals profile, residents without pets and animals can acknowledge a community's pet policies and give their property manager a better understanding of where pets and animals are living within their community.
