Los Angeles County Raises Dog Limit From 3 to 4 Per Household
On a motion by Supervisors Kathryn Barger and Hilda Solis, the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved amends the existing municipal code to allow up to four dogs per household per household in unincorporated areas.
“By increasing the number of dogs allowed per household from 3 to 4, we are hoping to encourage responsible pet owners to consider adopting an additional dog from one of our county shelters,” said Supervisor Barger.
Other counties in the state also provide a similar four-dog ordinance including San Diego and San Bernardino. In order to have more than four dogs, one must be licensed as an animal facility, most commonly used for groomers, kennels or pet shops.
