As we've reported, rents in Denver are finally coming down after a long period of sky-high costs that added immeasurably to the difficulty of making a living in Denver despite the booming economy. But the prices aren't exactly a bargain for pet owners. Even the complexes with the best deals for lovers of dogs, cats and other critters typically require hefty, non-refundable deposits that range up to $500, in addition to significant monthly fees.

The details come courtesy of Zumper post "The 7 Best Pet Friendly Denver Apartments Right Now."

As you'll see, several of the highlighted metro-area apartment complexes are attempting to entice customers with offers of free rent for a month or more — and they don't reject pet owners out of hand (though they typically limit the number of animals allowed per unit). Yet the additional costs are considerable: The lowest deposit for a cat among the seven places is $200. As a result, individuals with pets may well be asked to pay rents on par with or above the eye-popping levels of a year or two ago.

Continue to check out Zumper's picks for the best pet-friendly apartments in Denver right now, featuring text from and links to the original listings, with info about pets highlighted.
