Make Renting Fair: Pets are Welcome

February 14, 2018

ECLC supports the Make Renting Fair campaign and its call for the Victorian Government to implement rental reforms that would allow people to keep their pets at their rental homes.

Pets are often considered ‘part of the family’, and research suggests that pets can boost people’s health and sense of wellbeing, particularly older renters and people experiencing hardship.

The Victorian Government announced a suite of rental reforms in 2017 but a number of them are yet to be implemented. This means many people who rent remain separated from their pets or forced to surrender them to shelters. That isn’t fair.

Write to your MP to ask them to #MakeRentingFair.
