Performing animals

All persons who work with, train, supply, present, exhibit or show animals which are used for entertainment or therapy must register with their local authority.  The Act does not apply to the training of animals for legitimate military, police, agricultural or sporting purposes or the exhibition of these animals in demonstration or similar events.

Upon application for registration, the premises will be inspected by an officer of the Environmental Health team along with a veterinarian, if required.  If a veterinarian inspection is required, there will be an additional charge for this.
