Register an animal exhibition, animal market or animal exchange

Description

If you would like to hold events such as animal shows, animal fairs and animal exhibitions, you must notify the responsible administrative authority. In addition, you need an animal welfare permit if you

  • carry out animal exchanges for the purpose of exchanging or selling animals by third parties, or
  • commercially display animals or make them available for such purposes.

For livestock exhibitions, livestock markets and events of a similar nature, notification obligation applies in accordance with the provisions of the Animal Health Act. "Livestock" in this sense are, for example, pets of the species horse, donkey, cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, rabbits, many poultry species, game and camellias.

Dog and cat shows must be displayed if

  • dogs and cats from EU Member States or third countries participate, or
  • the exhibition or event is to take place in a district at risk of rabies.

If you would like to hold events such as animal shows, animal fairs and animal exhibitions, you must notify the responsible administrative authority. For commercial purposes, you need an animal welfare permit.

Register the event in writing with the responsible office. This is done either by means of a form provided by the Authority, electronically or by informal application.

The informal application should contain the following points:

  • Information about the organizer and the responsible person
  • Place, time and period of the event
  • Information on the animals and animal species exhibited or offered

The venue to be used for the event will be inspected by the competent local veterinary authority. The permission for animal exhibition (possibly with conditions and restrictions) or the negative notice as well as the fee notice are usually sent by post.

Tip: Before submitting the application, ask the competent authority for details on the requirements and the procedure; if available, you will also receive the application/notification form there.

Contact the veterinary office of your county or city.

  • Dogs and cats must have effective vaccination against rabies.
  • Dangerous animals such as poisonous snakes or scorpions are not allowed on animal exchanges.
  • Special restrictions apply to protected animals.

Ask the competent authority which documents you need to submit in the specific case.

where applicable: procedural fee according to the respective rules on costs or fees

Advertisement: at least 4 weeks before the start of the event

Application Deadline: 4 Weeks
