Pet Industry Federation

Request

The Pet Industry Federation (PIF) is the trade association for pet businesses. We have almost 2,000 individual pet businesses in membership, ranging from pet retailers, kennels, catteries and home boarders, to suppliers, dog groomers and manufacturers. We offer a range of business benefits to our members, support them when problems arise within their business and represent the industry with government departments and other external stakeholders. We are part of the Primary Authority scheme with the Corporation of London on pet vending licensing, and have been involved in putting together model licence conditions for animal establishments, including the recently published conditions by the CIEH on boarding kennels.


Following the DEFRA review into animal establishment licensing, PIF would like to ascertain
how many licensed pet businesses exist within each local authorityand request this information under the Freedom of Information Act.

I have therefore attached a short list of questions which we would be grateful if you could complete.
