The Morton Where Everyday is a {Pet} Pawty


Pet Pawty at Grand Rapids apartment community, The Morton

Once you step foot–or in this case paw–into The Morton apartment community, you’ll quickly realize that pets are important to the Rockford Property Management Team. We rarely run into residents that don’t have a pet and that’s because with the amenities and pet perks, The Morton has your furry friends covered.

Downstairs you’ll find a pet relief area to use when the weather is iffy or you don’t want to change out of your favorite “no one needs to see me” sweatpants. The area is complete with a wash station. Not only does the building offer pet perks BUT also is the site of the *brand new* Morton Hotel—a modern, dog-friendly design great for a night or an extended stay.

Your pet will be excited to know that they’re included in the Perks Program with Nature of the Dog (10% Off Boarding Services) and Beer City Dog Biscuits (5% Off Dog Biscuits). A perk for both pet and pet parent is the Sparkle & Shine Cleaning Services of West MI ($25 Off Top-to-Bottom Cleaning) ensuring a sparkly clean residence.
