Apply for a licence for rehoming of animals

Rehoming will require a licence where 5 animals are supplied as pets in a single movement  or where 5 animals are supplied as pets over the course of a 12 month period. 

The premises will be inspected by an approved officer and vet, if necessary, before a licence is granted.


A fee of £205 will be charged on submission of an application. You will need a credit or debit card available to make payment.

There will be an additional cost to cover vet fees. This will not be payable on submission of the application, but at a later date once a site visit is conducted.


You must not be disqualified from owning , keeping, taking possession of, transporting, keeping or using animals.

You may require planning permission.
