Hello everyone, Im looking for some advice. I am a petmider and have been for several years, I care for peoples pets in their home and my home and I also walk peoples dogs. Six months ago my local council informed me that I need a licence and if I fail to obtain one I could face prison. The licence they say I need is an animal boarding licence and they quote this paragraph from the Animal Boarding Establishments Act 1963. No person shall keep a boarding establishment for animals except under the authority of a licence granted in accordance with the provisions of this Act. Interpretation. References in this Act to the keeping by any person of a boarding establishment for animals shall, subject to the following provisions of this section, be construed as references to the carrying on by him at premises of any nature (including a private dwelling) of a business of providing accommodation for other peoples animals: But they didnt quote this section which appears to exempt me because the provision of accommodation isnt my main activity. [FONT="]I only charge for the care and exercise I provide.[/FONT] A person shall not be deemed to keep a boarding establishment for animals by reason only of his providing accommodation for other peoples animals in connection with a business of which the provision of such accommodation is not the main activity; They have now asked me to attend a recorded interview and claim I am being investigated for a possible criminal offence; they claim I could be arrested if I dont attend. What do you think, I should do.
