Eligibility Criteria
Applicants for a pet vending licence must not be
disqualified from keeping a pet shop / pet vending
business.
Application Evaluation Process
Once the application is received by the Council it will
be forwarded to an appropriate officer to inspect the
premises. The premises, facilities and management will
be inspected to ensure they comply with the current pet
vending licence conditions.
Where appropriate, licence applications may also be
subject to a veterinary inspection.
Applications are then either approved with licence
conditions or refused.
Local Authorities must have regard to the following
(and other appropriate matters) when considering an
application for a pet vending licence:
that animals will be kept in suitable accommodation,
for example in regards to temperature, size, lighting,
ventilation and cleanliness.
adequate food and drink will be provided to the
animals and they will be visited at suitable intervals.
that any mammalian animals will not be sold too
young.
that steps are taken to prevent disease spreading
among the animals.
that adequate fire and emergency provisions are in
place.
The types and numbers of animals that may be
accommodated at the premises will be specified on the
licence.
Appeals
Any applicant refused a licence has a right of appeal to
the First Tier Tribunal.
Planning Permission
Any premises from which a pet shop operates may
require planning permission. Applicants are advised
therefore to contact this Authority’s Development
Control Department, for further information regarding
planning matters.
Building works may also require approval from the
Council’s Building Control Section.
Licence Renewal Reminders
All licence holders will normally be sent a reminder and
the necessary forms of renewal approximately three
months in advance of the expiry of a licence.
Please note the responsibility for renewal rests with the
licence holder. Reminders are sent purely as a courtesy.
To run a business selling pet animals you
need a licence from the Local Authority.
