Pet Friendly Home Options

by Shea Homes Arizona on April 4, 2014

Did you know that Shea Homes AZ offers built-in pet options for your new home? At Shea, we know that furry family members deserve a little TLC, so we created some options just for them that you can add to any Shea Home.


No matter which of these little friends resembles your pet the best, we have an option to make your life easier and their lives happier.

For starters, Shea Homes all have the option to come equipped with a pet door. In Arizona it’s not always a good idea to leave your pets outdoors for long periods of time, and each new Shea Home offers the option to install a small, medium, or large pet door. These can be installed in solid doors as well as in some exterior walls. And with our commitment to you and your pets, we’ve selected a highly engineered door to ensure quality, safety, and energy efficiency. You can talk with your community representative about door placement and dimensions offered for your home plan.

Could your dog (or cat or bunny or tortoise) use some exercise? We’ve teamed up with our landscaping TradePartners to offer our second pet friendly option, a customized outdoor dog run. Dog runs are a great solution for homeowners with pets who like to dig holes, chew up plants or jump on guests. Runs can be customized in size and fencing depending on your needs and preferences, and can also include a shaded cover to keep Fido out of the hot sun. Talk to your community representative about how to add a dog run to your new Shea home, so you can keep your pet and your petunias healthy and happy. And don’t forget to leave lots of fresh water and food out in the run!

Our third pet option is one that appeals to the non-canine lovers among us. Whether you have a trained bunny or a cat, a litter cabinet may be just what you’ve been waiting for. For homeowners who choose this option, we’ll construct a finished opening in an existing laundry room cabinet (where applicable), so your pet has easy access to the litter box and you and your guests don’t have to see (or smell) it!

At Shea we are always excited to offer those little options that add extra bit of hospitality for your family and guests, whether they be the human kind or the fluffy, four-legged kind.

You can always call, toll-free 866-OWN-SHEA (696-7432) or visit Shea Homes Arizona online today to explore our communities in the Valley of the Sun!
