Nehemiah recognises that keeping pets can offer significant benefits to their owners, however irresponsible ownership can cause nuisance and affect the quality of life of others living nearby.
You do not need to ask Nehemiah for permission to keep a pet. However, we do not allow you to keep any dogs that are banned by law.

Tenants are responsible for the health and welfare of their animals and must ensure that their property size is sufficient for the number and type of pets that they have. Please refer to our pet policy that can be found on our website nehemiah.co.uk under policies.

Customers living in a young parent scheme will not be allowed to keep a dog or a cat because of the possible risk to the babies and young children that live at the property.

Customers living in retirement living flats will be allowed to have one small dog or a cat.
Pets will not be allowed to wander corridors or hallways. Dogs must be walked away from the scheme.
Cats must be provided with a litter tray. All pets must be house trained.
Customers will be asked to give the scheme manager or support worker information of another person willing to take care of their pet in the event of hospital admission an inability to look after the pet.

Where a customer starts to have trouble looking after their pet the scheme manager or support worker will access advice and assistance from voluntary organisations such as the Cinnamon Trust that operate a network of dog walkers and foster carers across the UK for the elderly and the terminally ill.
