Licence Conditions and Inspections
We carry out inspections to ensure that premises are suitable and that the licence conditions are met. The purpose of the licences and inspections is to ensure that:
accommodation is suitable in terms of size, construction, temperature, lighting, ventilation and cleanliness.
animals are adequately supplied with suitable food, drink, and bedding material.
animals are adequately exercised.
all reasonable precautions are taken to prevent and control the spread among animals of infectious or contagious diseases.
appropriate steps will be taken for the protection of the animals in case of fire or other emergency.
