“I am disabled and currently homeless with my dog. I rescued my dog from being put to sleep. My dog is my greatest support for my mental health, and I have had to consider getting rid of her just to get a roof over my head.
“I cannot find a rental anywhere where I can keep my dog. I feel discriminated against for owning a dog to help with my mental health. I have looked in many different suburbs, but the problem is complicated because I need to be in a particular region to receive medical support. But still, nothing.
“Please… the stress on pet owners is getting beyond a joke, and more and more animals are ending up being abandoned or surrendered. Rescue groups are overrun with animals because landlords won’t allow pets. This is not fair on anyone: animals or people.” Anonymous
