We hope you find this guidance useful. It has been written following work undertaken by the ORG Panel.

Research shows for pet ownership, there are several proven health benefits for people, including physical, mental and emotional improvements.

It is also recognised that pet ownership can be a means to improving your socialisation skills, especially when meeting and interacting with other pet owners.

However, choosing to become a pet owner should be carefully considered. You will need to:

  • Be aware of the commitment needed to care for a pet.
  • Avoid impulsive decisions about obtaining a pet and think of a pet that is suited to your home and lifestyle.
  • Recognise that having a pet requires a lot of time and money.
    Ensure pets are properly identified where appropriate (i.e.,tags, microchips).
  • Prevent a pet from upsetting other people, animals and the environment, including proper waste disposal, noise control, and not allowing pet(s) to stray or become feral.
  • Make alternative arrangements if caring for the pet is no longer possible or you are going to be away from home.

Irresponsible pet ownership can cause suffering to animals and be a nuisance to your neighbours.
