If you own property in Vancouver, consider allowing pets. I can't find housing for me and my dog and my cat. My pets make me a better person, they make me accountable and reliable and they get me through these hard times. I love them more than anything or anyone.
I have an idea that there could be a database of all the pets in the city and you can register your pet and it can be viewed by the public and potential landlords. Landlords could also report damage or behavioral issues which could be added to the database and viewed publicly. This way pet owners will have to be accountable for the actions of their pets. And good pet owners can have documentation proving that their animals will not be a problem. Maybe more landlords would allow pets in their rentals if there was a way they could confirm that your dog is a good boy.
