Animal welfare boosted by new law coming into force - England Only

 

The Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018 come into force today

 

New regulations have come into force today (Monday 1 October) to strengthen animal welfare, particularly around puppy sales, in England.

 

These will:

 

--Ensure that breeders must show puppies alongside their mother before a sale is made.

--Tighten regulations so that puppy sales are completed in the presence of the new owner – preventing online sales where prospective buyers have not seen the animal first.

--Ban licensed sellers from dealing in puppies and kittens under the age of eight weeks.

--Regulate adverts, including on the internet, by ensuring licensed sellers of all pets include the seller’s licence number, country of origin and country of residence of the pet in any advert for sale.

--Introduce a new “star rating” for dog breeders, pet shops and others to help people rate them on their animal welfare standards.
