IL ordinance could limit number of pets per household
ILLINOIS – The Peoria-Star Journal reported today that a new law in Spring Valley, Illinois could limit the number of pets allowed in each household.
The law comes on the heals of mounting hoarding cases in the area – and around the country.
Mayor Jim Narczewski referenced an Illinois Valley rescue that recently took control of 37 animals from one home.
Similar cases have sprung up in North Carolina, Texas, New Jersey and New York in recent weeks.
At least one residence in the Spring Valley area currently houses 22 cats.
But residents seem to be for the move – a legislative committee unanimously agreed to place the limit at six animals.
