Los Angeles County increases dog limit from three to four - Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates

Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors increases dog limit from three to four, janice hahn, kathryn barger, sheila kuehl, mark ridley-thomas, hilda solis, mary cummins, animals, motion, approved, lift limit, increase number of dogs
     Yesterday the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors unanimously agreed to increase the dog limit per household from three to four. San Diego and San Bernardino also provide a similar four-dog ordinance. Here is the motion.  Text of the motion is below. This affects all people living in unincorporated cities in Los Angeles County. Those who want to have four or more dogs must be licensed as an animal facility, such as a groomer, kennel or pet shop. The permit application can be found at Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control
     The City of Los Angeles which in the physical county of Los Angeles is an incorporated City so the limit is still three. Here is the list of unincorporated cities in LA County. Here is a list of the incorporated cities in LA County.  
     Animal Advocates sent the County's motion to all Los Angeles City Council members to ask them to make and/or second the same motion for the City.

MOTION BY SUPERVISORS HILDA L. SOLIS
AND KATHRYN BARGER                                                                                     July 11, 2017
Increasing County Dog Limit
Currently the County of Los Angeles has a three dog limit for households in unincorporated areas. In order to have four dogs or more one must be licensed as an animal facility, most commonly used for groomers, kennels or pet shops. Responsible pet owners who properly register their pets and abide by the residential dog limit are restricted from the opportunity to adopt an additional pet. With so many dogs available in Los Angeles County shelters, individuals who wish to add to their family by adopting an additional dog should be given the opportunity. Other counties in the State also provide a similar four-dog ordinance including San Diego County and San Bernardino County.   This partnership between our Animal Care facilities and engaged community members is vital to our ability to care for the animals in the County, and this is a step to further that relationship.
            WE, THEREFORE MOVE that the Board direct the County Counsel and the Director of Animal Care and Control to prepare a draft ordinance that amends Los Angeles County Code Section 10.20.038 to increase the number of dogs allowed in a single family residence without requiring an animal facility license from three to four.
