To enhance animal welfare and the professional standards of pet shops, pet shops have to adopt the guidelines set out by NParks/AVS and comply with the Conditions of Licensing.

Pet Purchase Declaration (PPD) Form
Under the licence conditions, pet shops selling dogs, cats, and rabbits must assess whether their customers are suitable to be pet owners prior to the sale. This pre-sale screening process involves having both buyer and seller complete the Pet Purchase Declaration (PPD) form. Those buying a dog will have to complete the online PPD via the Pet Animal Licensing System (PALS) when the retailer transfers ownership of the dog upon completion of the sale.
