Changes to animal licensing laws have been released to provide a single license for a number of existing regimes. The license includes animal boarding such as in your home, day care, and in kennels, breeding dogs, selling animals as pets, hiring out horses for riding, and performing animals.
In October 2018, the government published the Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018.
It introduces a new licensing regime to replace the following licensing and registration systems:
All current licenses will continue to be subject to the same restrictions under this legislation.
We will investigate complaints of poor animal welfare or conditions in a commercial business within the Dudley Borough. If you have a general concern about the welfare of an animal, and want to complain about a business in Dudley Borough, please can use the Animal Welfare Advice and Complaints form.
Alternatively you can report the matter directly to the RSPCA.
