The fact that you don’t own your own home shouldn’t stop you from being able to adopt a pet.
AdvoCATS works with you, the tenant, to put together a body of evidence to support any tenancy application, and will deal direct with your landlord on your behalf if that’s what you want. If your tenancy agreement says No Pets we are happy to query that, and make a case for you.
What we can do for you:
On the viewing day, another family made an offer on the house. They were rejected and we were chosen instead – the landlady was very impressed with extra paperwork AdvoCATS helped me to create! There’s no doubt in my mind that AdvoCATS played vital role in our success with this house, without you I might have had to say goodbye to my babies. I don’t know how to thank you enough! – Ruth G
I’m very lucky as my landlord allowed me to have my cats. I had to pay a bit extra deposit wise but it wasn’t that much. I live in the countryside and the gardens around the house had problems with rats before I arrived – no more! My cats have probably saved her money as no destructive rats/ rodents come anywhere near. I have been renting the house for 7 years now and am unlikely to move. Cats and I are very happy here and my 3 fur babies are vital to my mental health and happiness as I suffer from clinical depression. Landlords need to realise that pets mean people are more likely to be long term tenants and look after a property – at least the majority anyway – Julie Hogg
This is such a good idea. We are sooooo lucky that our landlord lets us have animals, but this hasn’t always been the case. I’ve grown up with cats (and many other animals), but I remember when I moved out to go to uni, and then subsequently into rented accomodation when I got my job, how lonely the house felt without any pets. Pets are part of the family and are so important! It’s sad that many animals are missing out on wonderful homes simply because young people cannot get on the housing ladder – Gabby Carr
