Licence to keep exotic animals

If you intend to keep a wild or exotic animal, by law, you have to apply to us for a licence. Check the full list of animals you need a licence for.

How much it costs

The minimum charge for a licence is £104 plus vet inspection fees. You can pay by this by debit or credit card by calling (01226) 773743. Check our pay page to see which cards we accept.

How to get a licence

Contact us for advice in the first instance as we'll need to arrange an inspection of your premises, before we grant a licence, to make sure that you have the appropriate arrangements in place to care for the animals.
