The Congressional Towers community in Rockville has gone to the dogs! Effective September 1, 2020, buildings 257 and 259 are accepting dogs as part of a new pet policy.
In addition to being perfectly located in Rockville, MD, across from Congressional Plaza and blocks from Twinbrook Metro, they understand that your pooch is part of the family and they want them to feel as much at home as you do. Nothing can warm your heart quite like a furry friend.
What can they do there? Plenty. The Congressional Towers apartment community is equally dog-friendly as it is people friendly, so read on. They happily accept dogs that meet the breed restrictions.
Of course, there are plenty of great perks for canines living at Congressional Towers. The spacious apartments provide plenty of space for you and the pup! The spacious kitchens provide plenty of room for your pet’s food and water, washers and dryers located on each level to help owners remove fur from their clothes, and patios or balconies available so your dog can relax in the sun during the day.
A pet deposit is required, in addition to monthly pet rent. Have questions on pet (or human) life at Congressional Towers Apartments? Curious about our pet-friendly apartments for rent here in Rockville? Find the complete pet policy here or get in touch with them today!
