Housing New Zealand - no longer allow tenants to have a Dog sign now

We are all aware that sometimes circumstances beyond our control, change and the position we were in.  But our Dogs should stay with us!

We ask you Housing New Zealand to allow responsible dog ownership and allow us to have our dog that is registered, microchipped and desexed living with us in a HNZ home.

For a family that have a loyal Dog as their companion, that they could afford while paying market rent, but for whatever reason can no longer and are applying for or are currently in a Housing New Zealand home will NOT be allowed to have that Dog, unless it is useful, eg a guide dog.

Housing New Zealand are not allowing New tentants to own a dog at the property unless they have very special circumstances.  Apparently those already in HNZ homes that have been granted permission to have a dog can continue to have a dog as long as permission has been sought.

What do you think New Zealand?

Housing New Zealand (HNZ) documents released under the Official Information Act revealed a plan to allow dogs to live at a state house only ''in exceptional circumstances''.

HNZ considered dogs a ''barrier to independence'' that made it difficult for tenants to ''move on'', the document revealed.

Criteria for having a dog

A dog is welcome in a state house if . -

• It has been trained to assist a person with a disability

• It is important to a tenant's therapy for a mental illness or other chronic health conditions.

• It has been at a property for many years and has been present at inspections.

• Decision to grant permission made on a case-by-case basis.

Will we allow our Government to dictate to us, responsible Dog owners and Lovers that we can no longer apply for a HNZ home if we have a Dog?
