Our mission at PAAW House is for the UK to be the most pet-friendly place on the planet and this is a mission shared by our friend, Russell Hunt at Pets Lets.
The UK is, a very pet-friendly nation; however, we are seriously lagging behind with the legalisation that allows people to keep pets in specific accommodations. Russell at Pets Lets agrees, and has been doing his bit to help people find long and short-term pet-friendly lets in London. We recently met him to find out more about his business.
“The number of people looking for pet-friendly properties has increased throughout my years as a London search agent, but the attitude of landlords and freeholders towards pets has not changed.
Pets Lets came about because over the years I have inherited three dogs from people who found themselves in non-pet friendly buildings. Research shows us that pets bring wellbeing and happiness and are considered by many to be part of the family, so it’s very sad when families have to give up their pets.
Our mission is to help London landlords recognise the important of pets and become more flexible. We also aim to raise the profile of London as a pet-friendly destination, and so offer 100% pet-friendly rentals.
If we don’t have the right property or location, we will find it for you. All our properties are currently in Zones 1 & 2 and we try to make sure they are close to commons, parks and communal gardens. We also offer everything from short lets to holiday lets and long lets with pets.
To help owners we also have a Petcierge service, where your pet is looked after if you need to go out, and a London Pet Guide, that shows you the best places in London to visit with your four-legged friend.”
