PET FRIENDLY RETIREMENT VILLAGES: HOW DO THEY WORK?

Whether they’re big and furry, small and scaly or covered in feathers, pets are an important part of our everyday lives and provide a number of benefits to our physical and mental wellbeing. In fact, almost two thirds of Australian households currently own a pet and over 60% of dog and cat owners regard their pet as a family member. And so it is no surprise that most people would like to take their furry companions with them when the time comes to transition into retirement living.
