The Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) Regulations 2018


Read the regulations.


The law governing the licensing of animal welfare establishments has changed from 1 October 2018. This brings a much needed update to the licensing of animal activities.

On this page, you will also find our latest list of licensed animal premises.
 

What animal activities require an animal license?

The new regulations apply to certain activities involving animals, including:

  • Dog breeding

  • Dog boarding in kennels and home boarding of dogs

  • Dog day care

  • Cat boarding

  • Selling animals as pets

  • Exhibition of animals

  • Hiring out horses

 

Regulatory guidance has been produced for all the above activities can be found by following the links on the left hand side of this page.

 

The following animal licenses are largely unaffected by the new regulations:

  • Zoo licensing

  • Exotic, dangerous or wild animal licensing

 

What happens next?

 

The council is currently in the process of reviewing the new legislation and guidance. As a result licence conditions will be changed and our fees and procedures will also need to be adjusted. If you have an animal license with Knowsley Council, we will contact you to let you know what the next steps are. In the meantime, you should review the above guidance to see how the changes might impact on your business.
