Pet Shop Licensing
The City of Racine Public Health Department - Environmental Health Division annually inspects and licenses pet shops in order to ensure the well-being of the animals and the people who purchase the animals.
Pet shops are regulated solely by Racine Municipal Code, and are defined as a person or corporation that sells any animals which will be kept by others for pleasure. However, a person selling only animals which he/she has
bred and raised is not considered a pet shop.
