Campaign – Action – Teach – Support


AdvoCATSeastmids is a wholly voluntary organisation which provides a FREE practical support & advice service to tenants and landlords where there are issues with keeping pets in rented properties.

Surrendering pets for rental issues is the second highest reason animals are handed in to rescues, and with more people renting than ever before, the problem is getting worse – pets with perfectly good, loving homes are taking up space in shelters which is desperately needed for genuine strays & hardship cases.

AdvoCATS looks to take the fear of the unknown out of the pet permission equation – typically compiling documentation such as vet references, pet assessments, tenant checks etc, to enable a landlord to make an informed decision about allowing a pet in their property. They can also step in with support and advice to help prevent issues from becoming bigger problems.

AdvoCATS is run by people with a solid background in pet rescue and animal welfare, and backed by many of the leading vets and rescues in the area. Established in 2018 and already recognised by:

  • Cats Protection
  • National Landlords Association
  • ARLA Propertymark
  • Nottingham City Homes
  • EMH Homes
  • EMPO (East Midlands Property Owners)
  • APGOCATS (All Parliamentary Group for Cats)

Although based in the East Midlands, AdvoCATS is happy to offer advice to people outside the area, and has even assisted a British family relocating from Bulgaria!
