Kennel License ~ Seminole County 



Seminole County, through the Animal Services Division, inspects and licenses commercial kennels.


A commercial kennel is defined as any premises operation or business used for the commercial boarding, breeding, buying, selling or rearing of animals. Excluded from this definition are animal hospitals unconnected with boarding, beauty parlors unconnected with boarding or incidental breeding, buying, selling or rearing of animals by non-commercial kennels.


Commercial kennel licenses are issued annually after payment of a fee established by the Board of County Commissioners. 


Kennels first becoming subject to licensing after March thirty first of any calendar year pay one half of the full fee for that year. Failure to secure a license may result in penalty fees added to the cost of license and/or the issuance of citations due to a Code violation.


Prior to issuing a new license or renewing a license kennel facilities are inspected at an undisclosed time. The kennel license must be prominently displayed on the kennel's premises and available for public inspection.
