A petition has been launched on the Channel Island of Jersey to prevent agents and landlords banning pets from the local private rental sector.
The petition - which now has around 500 signatures and runs until early February next year - is to the local parliament, known at the States.
It says: “Pet owners face the reality that their family could be torn apart because most landlords in Jersey have unnecessary bans or restrictions on pet ownership. As an island of animal lovers, how can we allow this situation to continue? This is discrimination, pure and simple. The law must change.”
