So it’s time to move home. You’ve been scouring the internet for apartments, watching the numbers decrease as you tick that ‘pet-friendly’ filter box.

It is an absolute nightmare trying to find somewhere to live that will take pets too, and it can often leave you not wanting to move at all.

So, to save you the stress of finding somewhere, we’ve compiled a list of the best pet-friendly homes available to rent all across the city. You’re welcome.
