PAAW House supports Jasmine’s Law, A Pet In Every Home
PAAW House is delighted to support Andrew Rosindell MP, with Jasmine’s Law. Jasmine’s Law backed by animal rights and animal welfare organisations, including the RSPCA and Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, will prevent landlords from banning “responsible owners” from bringing pets into rented accommodation.

Message from PAAW House
Since our inception over two years ago we have been calling on the government to introduce legalisation that bans no pet covenants in tenancy agreements and leases, protecting existing human companion animal relationships as is common in many countries.
In proposing a review of the model tenancy agreement last year, the government clearly recognise the importance of pets to people, and how traumatic it is to have to give up a pet when moving into rental housing. However, merely changing the wording in the model tenancy agreement will change nothing on its own as it’s not mandatory. Without legislation like Jasmine’s Law as is common in other countries, landlords can still include blanket bans on pets.
Animal Rescues are full to capacity with pets in need of homes, there are 1000’s of potential loving homes in our country but outdated blanket bans, negative pet clauses and lack of human tolerance and kindness prevent people from providing loving forever homes.
Changes in legalisation would open doors for love and companionship for many humans and animals. France, Canada and Australia have all successfully reviewed no pet clauses to include guidelines that balance the interests of ‘no pet people’ and remove blanket bans. Surely, we can do the same?
We believe every pet has the right to a loving home, and, every human deserves the right to love a pet.
