Animal Licensing

The Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018 replaced a number of pieces of legislation including Animal Boarding, Dog Breeding, Pet shops, and Day care, with a new single licensing regime for a number of animal licensing activities:

  • Selling animals as pets
  • Boarding of cats or dogs
  • Hiring of horses
  • Breeding dogs
  • Keeping or training animals for exhibition

A fee is payable for each license and additional veterinary charges may apply. Please contact the Public Protection Service on 01642 728272 or email EHTS@middlesbrough.gov.uk for more information on the licensing requirements or to request a license application pack.
