Animal boarding licence

If you run premises in Fife for boarding cats and/or dogs, or are thinking about starting one, you may need a licence from Fife Council.

You can apply for a boarding licence online using the relevant form to the right of this page.

We will grant a licence subject to the following:

  • receipt of a completed application form
  • receipt of the appropriate fee (see attached publication for details of current fees)
  • completion of a satisfactory inspection of the premises by ourselves


There is a fee for the licence, and it varies depending on the number of animals you have and any vet costs we may incur as part of the inspection.

The licence will last for 12 months.

Please contact us on the details provided for any further information.
