Penvale Cattery are extremely proud to announce that Cornwall Council have awarded us the top mark of 5 stars in the new Animal Activities Licensing Regulations 2018 (AAL) star rating system.
In 2018 DEFRA made it a requirement for local authorities to inspect and licence activities involving animals and the relevant establishments. New guidelines were put in place which dramatically changed from previous requirements and businesses were to be awarded a rating from 1 to 5 based on an in-depth assessment, similar to food outlets.
And when we say in-depth, we really mean in-depth…
As you can see it is no small task to meet the 5-star standard and was designed so that only a small number of catteries could reach.
We were, however, already in a great position to achieve this by conforming to the highest standards possible before the new system came in to place, but we are obviously very happy to be recognised as such. We would like to thank our amazing staff for their help and support and as always, would welcome any pet owner to have a look around themselves.
