Woman fined for breach of pet farm and dog licensing conditions

A licensee of Pretty Pets Kennel was fined $8,500 by the court for breaching the pet farm licensing conditions and keeping dogs without licence, said the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) in an official statement. 

During an inspection in March last year, the AVA found that Choo had housed too many dogs within the premises of Pretty Pets Kennel and some of the dogs were also unlicensed.

In addition, damaged metal cages and playpen bedding, both potential safety hazards for the dogs, were also found. 

The AVA also found that in August 2017, Choo had failed to comply with other pet farm licensing conditions, including failure to produce a death certificate for a dead puppy and to license one of its dogs.

Licensees found breaching AVA’s pet farm licensing conditions can be fined up to $10,000 and/or jailed up to a year for the first conviction. 

For non-compliance with the go licensing and control rule, offenders are liable to a maximum fine of $5,000.

The AVA also encourages the public to report errant pet farms of shops to AVA via their 24-hour hotline, 1800-476-1600, or via their website.

All information shared with the AVA will be kept confidential.
