Licensing of activities involving animals

The Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (Scotland) Regulations 2021 place a legal duty upon the council to publish a register of certain information held in respect of animal licenses granted by the authority.

The current register is duly published below.

Licensable activities

Subject to exemptions, a licence is required to carry out the following activities:

  • selling of animals as pets
  • engaging in animal rehoming activities
  • operating an animal welfare establishment
  • breeding three or more litters of puppies in any 12-month period
  • breeding three or more litters of kittens in any 12-month period
  • breeding six or more litters of kits (baby rabbits) in any 12-month period
