Find out what animal licences are available, how to apply and how much they cost
Some animal licences are issued and regulated by Walsall Council. For movement of animals, such as pigs, deer or sheep, you can find the information you need on the DEFRA website.
Places that breed, sell, care for, hire out or exhibit animals may require a licence.
A licence is not required to keep chickens or poultry as pets or to produce eggs for your household.
Some licence applications will need an inspection by a vet. The cost of the inspection will be invoiced to you by the council. Once you have received the invoice you can pay it using our online payment service. If you don't pay the invoice, it may mean the licence will not be issued to you. If a licence has already been issued, then it may lead to the licence being suspended or revoked.
