Reason for consultation Telford & Wrekin Council issue a number of licences under legislation aimed at the welfare of animals. A review of the standard conditions that are attached by the Council to each type of licence has been undertaken by officers in order to ensure the Council is issuing licences in accordance with the most up to date guidance and best practice. Updated model guidance and conditions in relation to some licence types have been published since the implementation of the Animal Welfare Act 2006 and since the Council’s Animal Welfare licence conditions were last reviewed.
Overview The review concerns:
Pet Shops
Animal Boarding – including Home Boarding, Dog Day Care, Kennels and Catteries
Dog Breeding
Dangerous Wild Animals
Riding Schools
