We recognise that landlords are busy people, and that sometimes it’s just easier to use the default clause and say ‘No Pets’


Perhaps a previous bad experience has completely put you off allowing animals in your property.

AdvoCATS works to give you, the landlord, enough information about the tenant and their pet(s) to make an informed decision. Run by people with a solid background in vet care and animal rescue, we are recognised by, and work with, many of the leading vets in the area as well as national and local independent animal shelters. Our service is FREE.

What we can do for you

  • Independently check tenants on your behalf
  • Assess cats and their behaviour
  • Obtain vet references to prove responsible ownership
  • Suggest alternatives to the default ‘No Pets’ clause in tenancy agreements
  • Tenancy agreements

Landlord quote from Matthew W.

“I have a number of rental properties and have never refused a request from a tenant for their pet(s) to live with them. I cannot imagine the pain and distress of being forced to give up a much loved pet because a landlord won’t allow it, and this is why I applaud the fantastic work that you do.”

Landlord quote from Louise Hawkins

I rent out my former home in Wiltshire and I’ve always let people have pets. All I’ve asked for are the carpets to be cleaned, which a lot of landlords want without pets. Animals have always brought such a huge amount of pleasure to my life and I’ve shared my home with them. I don’t see why my tenants and their pets should be denied the same – Louise Hawkins
