Pet shop licence

If you run a pet shop in Fife, or are thinking about opening one, you will need a licence from Fife Council.

You can apply for a pet shop licence or fish exhibitors licence online using the forms 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 all fees)
  • completion of a satisfactory inspection of the premises by ourselves


Note: The fee payable in respect of the registration of a person under the Act will be determined on application.

This licence will be valid from the date that it is granted until 31 December of that year. You will then need to apply in October for a renewed licence to begin on 01 January.
