Animal boarding licences

If you want to operate boarding kennels for cats and dogs, you must be licensed.

This applies even if you’re looking after a small number of animals at home.

How to apply for an animal boarding licence

To apply you’ll need to complete an application form and pay a fee

Download the application form and fees here

When we receive your application and fee we will arrange for an inspection of your premises.

This will result in a report on the suitability of your application.

Licence fees are charged annually upon application for renewal.

Your licence will expire on 31 December each year. So a licence granted initially during a year will only remain valid for the remainder of it.
