Q: How many is too many?

How many is too many?

The city of Chico has a limit of three dogs over the age of four months per household, in the unincorporated areas of the county the limit is seven. Do you think these limits are reasonable or not, and why?

Yes, I think a limit of 3 is reasonable, even generous. In my town the limit is 2 dogs, but you can get a special permit for more. In the unincorporated parts of the county there is no limit, and taxpayers recently paid out more than $100,000 to care for and place 200+ animals and prosecute their hoarding owner, whose defense was that she was not breaking any laws.

It is really hard to have one answer. The situations can be so different. It's like people talking about the number of children. If you can afford to feed your animals and properly care for your animals, then you should be allowed to have them. The problem occurs when people stop caring or run out of time and money. Hard quesiton.

That is hard to say. Some people have no business with one pet if they dont care for them. I know people who have 5 dogs and more and care for them just fine. Its to bad it cant just depend on the person for the law to say they have enough.
