We're making renting more friendly

Finding a pet-friendly rental property can be a tricky business for tenants.

A study from the Animal Health Alliance reveals more than 63 percent of Australian households own pets and more than 83 percent of Australians have had a pet in their lifetime.
So it’s no surprise that pet-friendly rental properties are in high demand.
But regrettably, fewer than 10 percent of all Australian rental properties are listed as pet-friendly, resulting in a critical shortage of appropriate accommodation for pet-owning households and a very real problem for residential tenants and their companion animals.

While many landlords and agents are hesitant to rent properties to tenants with pets, it actually makes great business sense by removing the issue of hidden pets and helping move rental properties faster and keep them occupied for longer.

Plus, keeping tenants and their pets together reduces rates of animal surrender, re-homing and euthanasia, and helps to nurture and sustain the irreplaceable bond between pet owners and their companion animals.
