Birds, pigs, rabbits, rodents and reptiles are NOT accepted at any of our rentals.

Dogs & Cats

Dogs and cats may be accepted at certain properties on a case by case basis. Animals with a history of vicious behavior will not be accepted. Florida Sun & Sand Realty complies with all fair housing laws. Any requirement to pay a pet fee or deposit does NOT apply to service animals or animals for the use of a handicapped individual.

A pet questionnaire must be submitted with all applications. Please review the entire pet policy prior to submitting this document.


Proof of canine liability coverage ($100,000 minimum) will be required prior to check-in. You may already be covered through your homeowners or personal umbrella policy. If not, coverage is easily obtained by purchasing a renters policy (must not exclude pet liability). This type of coverage is readily available through most insurance companies.


Dogs must be at least 1 year of age, housebroken, able to adapt to strange environments and able to resist the urge to chew.


Most of our rentals do not enforce a weight limit policy. If your particular rental has a more restrictive requirement, you will be notified at the time of application.


No intact dogs are accepted. All dogs must be spayed or neutered.


All dogs and cats must be current on all vaccinations, including rabies.


All dogs and cats must be treated with flea/tick control mediation 3 days prior to arrival. This is as much for the well being of your pet as it is for the home. Pests thrive in Florida’s climate and ailments (Lyme disease, anemia, etc.) could threaten the well being of your furry friend.


Tenants are responsible for cleaning up pet waste on a daily basis. If your rental includes lawn care, our lawn professionals will not contaminate their equipment and service may be refused. Tenants will be charged for cleanup if property is not properly maintained at all times. Please be sure all droppings are cleaned up and outdoor areas are hosed off prior to check out.


Sarasota County Code requires dogs to be leashed or contained at all times. If the yard is completely fenced, your pet can be leash-free in this area only. Tenants are responsible for making sure their dogs do not run at large.


Dogs are not allowed on furniture or bedding at any time. Tenants in violation of this rule will be charged for replacement of any items abused, worn, showing evidence of pet dander or left with an odor.


Please be sure your pet refrains from barking. Allowing your dog to bark disturbs the peace and there are steep fines for violating our local noise ordinance.

*Additional restrictions for homes within an HOA may apply.
