The Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018 and Animal Boarding Establishment Act 1963 (Wales and Scotland) require those carrying on a business providing accommodation for other people's cats and dogs obtain a licence from their local authority. This includes those operating from private dwellings. Boarders submitting a listing on FindPetBoarding must comply with this act and any other applicable regulations that apply in their area. Please note we do not accept listings from those operating under the HMRC trading income allowance exception as we have no way to monitor income.
If you have a listing for a service that requires a licence you may upload your licence certificate in the account area or send it to us via email for verification. We may also verify your licence status by referring to information provided by, or enquiries made to, your local authority.
We indicate boarders whose licences we have verified using a green checkmark. A lack of checkmark should not be construed as a lack of licence. Licence information is provided as a guide only. Although FindPetBoarding attempts to maintain the accuracy of the licence information on the site, we make no guarantees as to its correctness, completeness, or accuracy. Licences may be revoked or surrendered at any time and pet owners should always ask to see the original licence or contact their licensing authority to confirm a licence status.
If you are found to be operating without the appropriate licence your account will be disabled and your listing removed. You will not be eligible for a refund on any listing fees paid. However, should you apply for a licence and provide evidence one has been granted within one year of the account being disabled, your account will be reactivated and the days that were remaining on the listing at the time of removal will be reinstated.
