States have a public interest to protect, control, and maintain healthy animals. Each state has enacted legislation to prevent
unnecessary animal cruelty and to control animals in our communities. Many localities have licensing requirements for individual
animal owners and for businesses in the animal food or animal breeding industry. LicenseLogix will guide you and your business
through the oftentimes-confusing area of government regulation in this industry and ensure that you are properly licensed.
Breeders, pet shops and animal care facilities are all common animal-related businesses that require specific business licenses by states,
counties, and cities. The primary goals of these business licenses are to ensure that animals are properly cared for and are treated humanely.
State officers inspect facilities regularly as a condition of licensure.
