What's your best bet?


It's the Spring Racing Carnival and lots of people are thinking of having a bet. If you love pets and renters, we've got another suggestion...

Make a donation to the Tenants' Union and help us change the law for renters.
Nothing in the Residential Tenancies Act stops you from having a pet in your rented home. But many landlords won't even consider allowing pets. We think that's wrong.

We think landlords should not be able to use 'blanket bans' on pets, and we're not the only ones. A recent review of tenancy regulation received hundreds of submissions with support for positive pets clauses. Victoria and the ACT have introduced laws to make renting more pet-friendly – NSW is being left behind! We need your help to keep up the momentum for change.

A donation from you will help us work to change the law. Your pet will thank you for it!
