There is another lengthy thread on topix re: Providence Hill Apts. Short answer is yes, they accept pets (with a hefty fee).

Look for another place to rent, however. management is hateful and deceitful & will make your life miserable. Do NOT rent there!

Thanks for the information. I heard that they accept dogs, but do they accept cats and more than one pet?

Yes, they do accept pets.. Be prepared to be charged a pet deposit in addition to extra rent each month.. And oh yeah, don't expect your damage deposit back, and expect to be hit with a $1500 cleaning fee.. My apartment was immaculate when I left, but they charged me for pet damages nonetheless..

Seriously, Providence Hill may appear to be the only option, especially for someone relocating & who is unfamiliar with the area. DON'T rent there...there are better, less stressful alternatives out there.

We are looking, too. Places that accept pets are few and far between. It appears that the bad renters have ruined it for those who actually take care of their animals and homes that they occupy and most everything seems to be "no pets - no exceptions!" It would help if they would at least consider it on a case by case basis. I heard they take dogs, but does Providence let you have an indoor cat? Does anyone there have more than one pet?

BTW, we are not looking for anything long term, only a year or two at the most. But giving up our animals is not an option. We do not mind paying extra rent for the pets, or a larger deposit, we just need a decent place to live that accepts them.

You'll be sorry..... They'll be happy to take the exorbitant rent check (and fees) for a year or two. Then, when you try to move out, the real fun begins!

Two people have asked about multiple pets and specifically cats. Responses are all of the "you'll be sorry" type, but no one addresses the actual questions that they have asked. I know how difficult it is to find a nice place in Asland when you have pets. A person has to take what's available. The fact that you have had bad experiences comes through loud and clear, but can't someone help these people with the specific questions they are asking?

Would you please provide contact information for these other alternatives that you mention? We are also looking for a place that will allow 2 pets. We've watched craigslist, but there seems to be nothing in Ashland that is nice and takes pets. We do not want to live on the WV side. Our budget would accommodate a price of up to $950 per month. Thank you!

They allow one pet per apartment. Breed restrictions and weight restrictions apply for dogs. Pets must have up to date vaccination record, and they require current photos of your pet. Pet deposit is equal to first month's rent and an additional $25/month tacked on thereafter.. Specific enough??

Geez. I'll be bankrupt when we move out because my kids have beat the hell outta the walls, dirtied the carpet, etc.

Also, there is a HUGE parking problem in the very last building. Most nights neither me or my husband can park in front of our building.

Well, our family refused to pay for damages that were not actual damages. We later received a later stating that they would pursue legal channels, but this never occured. Nonetheless, they turned us over to a collection service so I now have a blemish on my formerly excellent credit file.

Agreed. We also had a problem with fallout on our vehicles from the nearby industrial areas. We were told to contact AK Steel, and they referred us to a car detailing center in Boyd County that AK had contracted with to clean Providence vehicles. We only accepted this offer one time because we had to leave our vehicle out there for the entire day, and this was extremely inconvenient.

INTERESTING:
You probably found a place by now. But for future people let me give a true answer and ignore the crap you are reading by others on here. First off they aren't answereing the question, Does anyone know what their pet policy is? Do they accept dogs? cats? Yes they take more than one pet, Yes they take cats too but don't expect to bring enough animals to raise a farm, not clean up after them, and still get your deposit back. The pet fee? yes of course, you will find this anywhere and after living in other states in apartments, what this place charges for pet fee is reasonable. I expected to pay more. In my last apartment in virginia, I had to pay 100 per month per pet tacked onto my rent so my 400 apt became 600 a month and that was not counting the pet deposit which is for damages so I wouldn't push this issue, it could be so much more expensive. Now to cover the other BS, First there was fallout from AK Steel which is frustrating but there is a number to call for a free car wash and you make an appointment and I always had my car back within the hour. I had no problems with the property manager drama, and when I moved I got most of my security deposit back (forgot to say pet fee nonrefundable) with no question no hassle. I lived there two years, only thing I was sorry for is that i moved and I am thinking about coming back. There is the 24 hour gym, there is a pool, and close to downtown ashland without all the druggies and trash hanging around. Yes the rent is hefty in this place, but it keeps out the garbage in my opinion and the place is usually pretty quiet. If you mind your own business, pay your rent on time, keep your place clean, and don't join the gossip group that sits in the dog park you should have a happy stay and move out event free. PS you have a change to state any damages on a form on move in, therefore any damages thereafter are more than likely something you may have to pay for so just take care of the place,report any issues to maintanence or managment before they get out of hand, and you should be fine.

And by the way, I looked hard for those mysterious "cheaper and easier alternatives or you'll be sorry" places that was vaguely described above in other comments, those places don't exist in Ashland KY, not if you have standards about the kind of neighborhood you want to live in and unless you qualify for low income housing which I don't qualify for even though I was just on the borderline. The only thing I was sorry for is that i ever moved away from Providence Hill.
