Can I keep a pet?

This will be a decision based on not only you but the pet you want to have and also the other children or young people living with you. If it’s a pet that you can keep in your room and look after well yourself (such as a fish or a hamster) then staff in the unit may allow this, however if you want to have a dog that will become someone else’s responsibility when you’re away out or there’s a young person who lives in the house that has asthma or is allergic to dogs then it’s unlikely this will be allowed. However you should be told the reasons why you can’t have the pet you’ve asked for and maybe you can negotiate for something more suitable for you and others in the house.
