Having had to put my favourite dog to sleep yesterday, I have to say that I can't think of anything worse than having someone else digging round in the situation and trying to prove some kind of illegality.
Unless you think that the kennels' mistreatment was a contributing factor in the dog's death you really do have to let this go and just be prepared to support your friend if s/he needs it.
You really aren't helping anybody by interfering and are likely to be putting your friend through more distress.

I'd second this. Bear in mind that your friend chose those particular kennels for her dog. It's bad enough for her that here pet has died when she wasn't there, without you implying to her, (intentionally or not) that she didn't do her homework in checking whether it was licensed. It's only going to add to her guilt.

I am really sorry to hear about your dog. I understand the points you are making and of course I don't want to cause my friend any further distress.
I do intend to phone the council tomorrow and check if this business has a licence. I won't give them details of what happened to my friend's dog and won't tell her I spoke to them.
I don't see the point in kennels having to be licensed if people turn a blind eye if and when they're not.

But, unless the kennel has done something that led to the dog's death, what difference does it make whether or not they were licensed? How is it going to help your friend to know that this is the case (if it is)?
Thanks for the good wishes, I'm sure you mean well.:)

Apart from obviously being upset, I would not be happy that my pet had been cremated without my consent or knowledge.
If she had been away for weeks or months then, obviously, it would be different but surely the dog could have been kept at a vet's? I would want to say goodbye to my dog and decide for myself if I wanted them cremated or not.

Then as a pet owner it would be your responsibilty to make it clear to a carer, which responsible pet owners do, even though it isn't a very nice thought.
What supplies do they need?
