Keeping Animals On Your Property

Can I Keep Animals on My Property?

Property owners are generally permitted to have domestic animals, such as dogs and cats. However, there are various restrictions regarding the number and type of animals such as livestock, chickens, and other exotic animals. Structures that house certain animals must also be set back from the property line. For more information, see the Zoning Ordinance or contact a code compliance officer in Planning.
