In Loving Memory of John Chadwick 

Known as a nation of animal lovers, it is becoming apparent pets are now too often seen more as a liability.

My very best friend, my hun John Chadwick, became unintentionally homeless. Unable to take his pets to temporary accommodation, and later, to permanent accommodation offered by the Council, he died by suicide on 16th March 2017. This was ten days after being separated from his "fur babies", who enabled his well-being. See website articles at MEN and Kent Online News.

The introduction of service dogs have proven invaluable for those with specific health needs. Pets are also known to provide Therapeutic benefits, giving the sense of purpose to carry on.

Pets also assist with the treatment of health, depression, isolation and addiction and are invaluable companions for those who are street homeless.

The links below give an insight of the dedication to homeless outreach and their fur babies, written by Daniel McDonald from Tampa, Florida. The inspiring and moving homeless research, written by Miss Amy Felicity Varle, is now with 10 Downing Street. There is a dedication P91, to my hun and those who have lost lives.

So lets stand together to prevent further deaths, such as my huns and those who have sadly lost their lives on the streets. Petition for change to current housing requirements, particularly for those deemed as vulnerable, alone or homeless, to enable provision of housing with pets. 

Introduction of person-centered housing based on individual need, will further help reduce the impact on public services, through enabling well-being.
