Pet shop licence

If you keep animals to sell as pets, at any property, you need a licence. You do not need a pet shop licence if:

  • you sell the offspring of an animal you keep as a pet;
  • you keep only pedigree animals which you breed;
  • you breed pedigree animals or acquire them for show.


The cost of a licence is £239
