Πανελλήνιος Σύλλογος Ιδιοκτητών Ενδιαιτημάτων Ζώων

Panhellenic Association Of Animal Boarding Kennel Owners

Establishment & Operation

The foundation of the association took place in 2016 after the Panhellenic consultation, organizing and rallying of all Licensed Animal Boarding Kennel owners as the most appropriate and necessary responce towards all uncontrolled, illegal and speculative observed creation and operation of an increasing number of new businesses, which by abusing and also advertized by the title “Animal Boarding Kennels” but at the same time failing to provide animal boarding services that meet and fulfill the relevant statutory legislation, are in essence illegal, place animal lives in danger and jeopardise the reputation of an entire field of Legal Proffesionals who, in contradiction, strive for the provision of legal and quality servises.

In simple words, the association acts as a shield on animal welfare when it comes to the provision of boarding kennel services by ensuring that all businesses that want to provide such services meet the “Conditions of Establishment & Operation of Animal Boarding Kennels & Habitats” as dictated by the European Law Directive and which in turn entails the ownership of a legal “License of Establishment & Operation for Animal Boarding kennels & Habitats” issued by the National Veterinary Service of State.

Aims & Objectives

Therefore, our main aims & objectives amongst others are:
  • The preservation of animal welfare when it comes to the provision of Boarding Services.
  • The preservation, study, claim & defend of all members of the association’s common social, ethical & economic interests.
  • The provision of information to all intrested animal owners for the increasingly observed pattern of having Legislative-Non-Compliant, “Pirate-Styled-Attituded” Animal Boarding Kennels that most important of all, endanger the welfare and health of any animal that happens to be provided with their boarding services.
  • Ensuring that animal owners realise the importance of selecting a Proffesional Animal Boarding Kennel that is legally established and who accepted following rules and operate under regulations, which after all are wisely created over time by us, animal owners, to serve our and our animals’ best interests.
  • The promotion & further of collaboration & knowledge sharing between members of the association on subjects that would positively enhance service quality provision and drastically provide solutions for dealing with day-to-day, animal caring and iteraction-based, activity related arising problems.

A Public Notice of Caution

For someone that is first of all informed, it is easy to understand and aknowledge that the most important criterion for the selection of an Animal Boarding Kennel canditate for our pet is that canditate being legally operating and owning a legal “Operating Licence”. Allow us to reason for the forementioned argument:

The ownership of a legal, state-issued “Operating Licence” translates to the fact that the Animal Boarding Kennel in question has been inspected by experts and found to conform with the relative statutory legislation, which “Statutory Legislation” in turn sums up the absolutely essential parts that are required for the operation of such a business. No fancy things, no value added services, no luxurious spaces – just the absolutely essential parts that would render the premises and services safe and hygienic for animal hosting.
So wrapping all this info up, conclusively, it is correct to argue that first and foremost an Animal Boarding Kennel canditate for service provision must hold a legal licence of operation, that fact alone provides answers to a whole lot of questions, and more importantly provides a basis for trust and security.

What Every Owner Should Be Aware Of

All animal owners should become aware of the below information concerning animal boarding kennels and shelter establishments:

  • As indicated by European Directive, the Hellenic State through the Ministry of Agriculture and its pertinent Veterinary State Deparment is issuing, after relative application of the boarding kennel or animal shelter canditate and after on-site inspection of the fullfilment of the “Conditions Of Establishment & Operation Of Animal Boarding Kennels, Shelters & Habitats” as stated by the current legislation and more precicly by the Greek Law 3170.
  • The legal state licencing of a boarding kennel is actually the “state veryfied” means of ensuring that the establishment is legally and operatively align with all safety prerequisites, essential basics actually, that are set throughout the years by legislators and are proven to promote a safe enviroment for animals to live and people to work in. Eg. Minimum sqm of animal living space, waste management, provisions for space for sick animals, schedules of disinfections, etc, etc.
  • On year 2016, it is a sad but true fact that many of the boarding kennels that are advertised as such, are actually abusing this title and blemish the reputation of the whole sector of boarding kennel service establishments (with deaths due to diseases, dangerous & unhygienic living conditions, diseasse percussions).
