"Duty of person responsible for animal to ensure welfare"
[DUTY OF CARE]
When selling live animals, to comply with The Animal Welfare Act 2006 we have to discharge our 'duty of care' of the animal over to you. To help us achieve this we have to ensure the animal will have what it needs at it's new home.
Live animals will NOT be sold without all the suggested items on the Pet Care Trust care sheet being already owned by you or being purchased at the time of the livestock sale.
*Consumables such as;- Food, Vitamins, Bedding and/or Substrate MUST be purchased FROM US at the time of purchasing the livestock.
Refusal to complete and sign our Live Animal Register will also prohibit purchase....NO EXCEPTIONS.
