In what circumstances are you likely to approve a request for a pet?

We will deal with each application for keeping a pet on a case by case basis. A small and reasonable number of the following pets may be kept:

  • Small caged animals, for example, hamsters or guinea pigs.
  • Caged domestic birds.
  • Fish in tanks, or bowls, including tropical fish. Not exceeding 33 Gallons (155 litres)
  • Non Venomous arachnids, insects, or reptiles in a tank or cage.

Please be aware that permission is dependent on various factors.
