The purpose of this study was to investigate the criteria that Sweden's county administrative boards use when reconsidering prohibition against owning or taking care of animals according to 29 § Animal Welfare Act (SFS 1988:534). The survey was conducted in two parts. The method for the first part consisted of a web-based survey to all Swedish county administrative boards. The questions covered the decision under § 29 Animal Welfare Act (SFS 1988:534), focusing on reconsideration of prohibition against owning or taking care of animals. The method for part two consisted of a study of all requests for reconsideration of prohibition against owning or taking care of animals for the period 1 January 2010 - 31 December 2012 by Swedish county administrative boards. The response rate for the survey was 57%. The results show that the criteria applied when reassessing prohibition against owning or taking care of animals rejected are: no changed circumstances, no changes in living conditions, lack of insight, short elapsed time and the absence of proof. For prohibition against owning or taking care of animals repealed entirely or partially applied criteria are: changing living conditions, prohibition against owning or taking care of animal’s long time, improvement of the social situation and certificates. As the reviewed prohibition against owning or taking care of animals in this study is not regulated by the Animal Welfare Act or given any support from the preliminary work, the opinions of county administrative boards on criteria become very central.
