COVID-19 - animal welfare

Last updated: 9 April 2020 at 10.30am

Animal Activity Licence Holders

We are not currently undertaking any inspections for new applications under the Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018. If your licence is due for renewal, you will be contacted by the licensing team with further advice.

Advice for animal related businesses

The government has released guidance to provide pet businesses (boarding, dog walking, groomers, selling pets and breeders) with advice on operating in a safe manner during the Coronavirus outbreak.

This is published on the Canine and Feline Sector Group website.

COVID-19 guidance is changing regularly. This guidance is subject to change depending on Government advice and we ask that you keep yourselves up to date with the latest information.
