"The council had already adjusted its policy on the temporary emergency accommodation that it owns, allowing the homeless to take their pets with them.... .... any formerly homeless people who declined a permanent offer of accommodation because they could not take their pets with them, would be allowed to stay on in the temporary housing without losing their place on the housing register. ...
Councillors voted unanimously to make the scheme permanent after hearing from Dee Bonett, a friend of John Chapman, who has been campaigning for the change ever since his death in 2017." ... See MoreSee Less

This is my first photo with BUB next our last photo together.
On the morning of Sunday, December 1st 2019 we lost the purest, kindest and most magical living force on our planet. BUB was cheerful and full of love laying in our bed with us Saturday night, but unexpectedly passed away peacefully in her sleep.. I have always been fully transparent about BUB's health, and it was no secret that she was battling a persistent and aggressive bone infection. Even knowing this, we weren't expecting her to pass so soon or so abruptly without warning. I truly believe that she willingly made the decision to leave her failing body so that our family would not have to make that difficult decision ourselves.
It is impossible to put into words the profound effect that BUB has had on my life, on the lives of thousands of homeless pets, and on the lives of those of you that have cared for her as if she were your own family. She taught me everything that I know about unconditional love, she brought my wife Stacy and I together, she's the reason we have our beautiful children Rosco and Lula, and she has been a constant source of warmth and love in our lives for the past 8 years. To say that our family is devastated would be an understatement.
But most importantly, BUB has made a huge difference in the world of animal welfare, and in the lives of millions of people worldwide. She has literally saved thousands of lives (both pets and humans), she started the first national fund for special needs pets, she was the subject of groundbreaking genetic and biological research, she's helped raise over $700,000 for animals in need, and has spread a message of determination, positivity, and perseverance to people all over the world. And even though my heart is absolutely crushed by her graceful departure from planet Earth, I know that her sprit, magic, and overwhelming energy are still with us, reminding us every day to be better.
Dearest BUB, I will never forget your generosity, your limitless supply of love, or your uncanny ability to bring so much magic and joy to the world. I am forever honored and humbled that you chose me as your caretaker. Please visit all of us in our dreams often. GOOD JOB BUB. ... See MoreSee Less
"Keith Flint's battles with drink, drugs and depression were so severe that at one point, he admitted it was only his love for his six dogs that stopped him killing himself." It makes me wonder how many of us find ourselves thinking in a similar way. #EAPAUK ... See MoreSee Less

"Wojtek (1942–1963; Polish pronunciation: [ˈvɔjtɛk]; in English, sometimes spelled Voytek and so pronounced)
... was a Syrian brown bear purchased, as a young cub, at a railway station in Hamadan, Iran, by Polish II Corps soldiers who had been evacuated from the Soviet Union. In order to provide for his rations and transportation, he was eventually enlisted officially as a soldier with the rank of private, and was subsequently promoted to corporal.
He accompanied the bulk of the Polish Second Corps to Italy, serving with the 22nd Artillery Supply Company. During the Battle of Monte Cassino, in Italy in 1944, Wojtek helped move crates of ammunition and became a celebrity with visiting Allied generals and statesmen.
After the war, mustered out of the Polish Army, he was billeted and lived out the rest of his life at the Edinburgh Zoo in Scotland. " ... See MoreSee Less
Not supporting the EAPA initiative means not only not responding to the opportunity to save lives and prevent tragedies, but it is actually promoting a status quo that causes people tragedies and in fact it triggers suicides as it leaves vulnerable people exposed to an impossible choice to become homeless or give up on their family and their purpose to be alive. It is sending a message to our nation and teaches our children that it is ok to consider other living creatures as a burden and disregard compassion over business profitability.
Jackie Doyle-Price MP says, “the Government would not seek to intervene in commercial decisions”, regardless of the social justice and regardless of human life and human tragedies. If all governments assume such an attitude, there would be no NHS, children would work in coal mines from the age of 10 and slavery would still be acceptable.
Why not simply inverse the “start point” of it all.
So, before a “no pet” restriction is imposed, Landlords should be required to obtain an additional licence. A licence that should be only issued if the service providers (Landlords) provide actual evidence that their request is substantiated and not based only on their preferences.
Renting is a business, and since beauty therapists or hairdressers must pay to obtain licenses to allow them to offer their services, there is no reason why Landlords should not be subject to similar licence requirements too. It should not imply any costs in terms of public funds and most would agree that Landlords could afford it.
EAPA has Grant Shapps support "Mental health is something that Grant feels very strongly about for example he earlier this year released a report into suicide prevention regarding the internet. As you know he presented a petition to Parliament on your behalf and will certainly continue to make representation to government - Office of The Rt Hon Grant Shapps MP" ... See MoreSee Less
"There is compelling evidence from clinical and laboratory studies – based on University of Harvard publication - involving brain-imaging technologies – that prove that levels of neurohormones like oxytocin — which is involved in pair-bonding and maternal attachment — rise after interaction with pets. Thus, it proves that the human-animal emotional bond does not differ from the one that we sustain in relation to close family members i.e. our own children." #EAPA#EAPAUK
