Sydney-based veterinarian, Yen Wong, the founder and director behind Rent With Pets, wants to match pet-friendly landlords with pet-owning tenants.

Rent With Pets is the newly launched site that provides pet-friendly listings in a similar manner to other rental websites.

“It’s a tragedy when pet owners are forced to give up their beloved pets due to the lack of pet friendly rental accommodation,” said Wong.

“Animal shelters are full of pets surrendered by people who are struggling to find pet friendly rental accommodation.”

A year ago, Property Observer reported that Melburnian rentals that offer themselves as "pet-friendly" can actually achieve a higher rental return.

However, Wong says that they don’t just match the tenants and the landlords and leave them to it. They work closely with landlords and property managers to set guidelines for the pets that are suitable for the properties.

Pet owners can access the site for free and, in celebration of the launch, the first 500 property managers and landlords to sign up, they can get free listings for a year.

Rent With Pets also includes information for pet owners on how to find the perfect rental, tips for applying and other useful information, such as a business directory.
