Hafnarfjörður Approves Pet Ownership in Public Housing

The Family Council of Hafnarfjörður has agreed that individuals living in social housing apartments owned by the municipality will now be allowed to own dogs and cats, RÚV reports.

Up to now, pets have not been allowed in social housing in Hafnarfjörður. There are still some stipulations to the new allowance, however, namely that individuals living in units that have a shared entrance must still obtain the agreement of 2/3 of their neighbours to acquire a pet. Individuals living in a unit with a private entrance do not need to obtain neighbour consent.
