The rehoming of animals (other than operating an AWE)
Under the regulations this means any operator that supplies an animal as a pet to a person in Scotland is required, subject to some exceptions, to be licenced if the following conditions are met:
- The person being supplied physically receives the animal in Scotland, and
- The supply takes place during a 12 month period in which at least 4 other animals are supplied by the operator as pets to a person in Scotland
Rehoming will require a licence where 5 animals are supplied as pets in a single movement or where 5 animals are cumulatively supplied as pets over the course of a 12 month period.
This activity relates to both the rehoming of animals originating within and out with Scotland.
The General Conditions that all licences are subject to can be viewed on the Council website.
