“When moving to the city from regional Queensland, we really struggled to find pet-friendly accommodation. I had accepted a job offer and needed to find a home, but it was so hard I very nearly had to cancel everything.

“Despite having references from our vet and doing everything possible to prove we were responsible pet owners, most properties wouldn’t accept us because we had two large dogs. Or, when we did find a property that accepted pets, it wasn’t really suitable at all. The photographs used online were deceptive, and the backyard was actually much too small.

“Our life went on hold. It was an incredibly stressful time. We’re very lucky to have found a home just in time.” Tarleigh
