Securing the right to rent with pets

Making One Health Housing a Reality

Making One Health Housing a Reality

At NOAH, we are committed to improving animal health and welfare. As part of this commitment, we have launched this important campaign: ‘Securing the Right to Rent with Pets: Making One Health Housing a Reality’ with the ambition to widen access to pets for those living in rented accommodation in the UK.

We believe that improving the ability to share our lives with companion animals benefits both people and animals – not only are the health and wellbeing benefits of pet ownership significant for us as pet owners, but widening access to pet ownership also means fewer animals are left without homes, and are able to live happy, healthy lives with their human companions.

Lots of progress has already been made to widen access to pets, for example the recently updated Model Tenancy Agreement (MTA), but we must do more. At NOAH, we understand that it is important for property owners and tenants to be protected throughout, and our campaign seeks not only to encourage wider use of the new MTA but also to create new policies that protect property owners and tenants wherever the MTA does not apply.
