(225 ILCS 605/5) (from Ch. 8, par. 305)
    Sec. 5. Applications by individuals for original licenses shall be made to the Department, shall be in writing on forms prescribed by the Department and shall be accompanied by the required fee, which shall not be returnable. Any such application shall require such information as in the judgment of the Department will enable the Department to pass on the qualifications of the applicant for a license. It shall include, but need not be limited to information concerning age, citizenship, present residence, location of the business licensed under this Act, including the location of all foster homes, description of facilities to be used, present and previous business connections and experience, bank and professional references, whether any license of the applicant under this Act or any federal, state, county or local law, ordinance or regulation, relating to dealing in or handling dogs or cats, ever was suspended or revoked and whether the applicant ever has been convicted of a felony. Such felony conviction may be taken into consideration by the Department in determining qualifications for licensing but shall not operate as a bar to licensing.
