Renting with pets on think tank agenda

It can be a struggle finding pet-friendly rental accommodation.

The Australian Companion Animal Council is hosting is annual think tank in June, and renting with pets is high on the agenda.

Other key topics on the program are:
Pets and aged care
* Access for animals in the community
* Education 

The ACAC has already done a lot of work on around renting with pets and has published guidelines on its website for both landlords and tenants

Registration for the annual one-day workshop (held on June 11) is open until June 3, and its an opportunity to influence policies around pets. You can register here. Its a discussion worth contributing to if you are interested in the wellbeing of companion animals and the value of the human-animal bond.
