United Kingdom Guidelines:
Although these are intended for the UK to conform to the Animal
Boarding Establishments Act 1963, they may be equally useful
to countries where no such guidelines exist.
Animal boarding establishments fulfil a public need. The public
have a right to expect that all premises satisfy basic standards
relating to the health, welfare and safety of the animals boarded.
Establishment owners should know the MINIMUM standards they must
attain. The licensing authority should apply the standards sensibly
The continuing task for local authorities, veterinary
professionals and the trade is to raise standards of health,
safety and animal welfare in such establishments.
The conditions contained in this
booklet have been agreed by relevant bodies involved in the provision
and control of such establishments. The contents represent the MINIMUM standards
to be applied in order to achieve that goal.
