The considerations included per capita domain pets as well as a variety of types of locations for pet-friendly rentals, such as private garden rentals, ‘pet-friendly’ rentals, competitive rent rates and no neighbouring animal complaints.

For those who wish to rent with pets, Southampton was officially the most livestock-friendly city in the UK, with new studies. The research, conducted by insurance broker Towergate Insurance in the United Kingdom, evaluated 25 major UK cities for the most ‘pet friendly’ locations for tenants and their furry friends against 10 criteria.
Such considerations included pets per person as well as various criteria to classify locations where animally-friendly rentals are available, such as: private gardens ‘rentals; rentals identified as’ pets permitted. Overall, Southampton was the top ten most animal-friendly major cities in all ten categories and was named the best location in the United Kingdom as a whole. South Toronto has been especially well-performed due to the lack of rental “penalties” for pet owners (pet owners in Toronto can expect to pay only 71 percent of the monthly average rental price in Southampton).
Nottingham and Manchester ranked second and third respectively in the overall index rankings in the majority of the top 3 ‘pet friendly’ major cities in the UK. Derby and Birmingham followed closely, respectively fourth and fifth.
