Enjoy a Pet-Friendly Retirement With The Village Retirement Group

Redcliffe with Pets

At The Village Retirement Group, we understand that pets are important members of the family, and retiring with them by your side is non-negotiable. That’s why we have a number of pet-friendly retirement villages across Brisbane that welcome all creatures great and small. All of our villages are just as much their new home as they are yours.

The Numbers Don’t Lie — We Aussies Love Our Pets!

Did you know that Australia has one of the highest rates of pet ownership in the world? A 2022 report from Animal Medicines Australia (AMA) concluded that there are now almost 29 million pets in Australia — that’s more pets than people! Dogs just pip cats as our most popular pets, though fish are the highest in actual numbers nationally. 

The continued boom in pet-related products and industries is also evidence we’re spending more on our beloved pooches and felines than ever before. AMA research also found that Aussies collectively spend an estimated $33 billion on their pets every year, but we all agree they’re worth it!

With many avid pet lovers in our team, you can rest assured that your animal companions will be well looked after in our pet-friendly retirement villages. Whether they walk, hop, or swim, they’ll have a home with us

Pets and Our Health

More than dear companions, our pets play a significantly positive role in maintaining our mental, physical, and social well-being. A recent RSPCA article stated that our fur babies saved the nation approximately $3.86 billion in health expenditure every year. Now that’s a lot of dog bikkies!

Even beyond making us happier and more fulfilled, it would appear that sharing your home with a pet may have several other benefits as well. It’s no wonder that finding a pet-friendly retirement village is a top priority for so many retirees! 

Information from Healthdirect tells us that owning a pet can benefit our health in quite a few different ways, including: 

  • Improving our cardiovascular health
  • Boosting our exercise levels
  • Reducing our blood pressure
  • Encouraging social interactions
  • Lifting our moods and self-esteem
  • Reducing our risk of depression

Pet owners have also been found to cope better with grief, loss and stress than others. Best of all, our pets are a font of unconditional love – and you can never have too much of that! We understand how special the bond can be between an owner and their pet, and having them with you is a life-long commitment.
