Registering/licensing is required in our town. We register them every year. The town also goes around door to door during the month of June checking for compliance.
That's not fair. I wonder what it requires to have a kennel license, I would like to foster goldens in the future. I personally think that I should be allowed at least 3 dogs if I want. We live in a very rural area with lots of acreage.We do have a city ordinance that limits us to two dogs per household, but they seem to enforce that one at will. For example, if you're the manager at a bank here in town and friends with the mayor, you can have three Goldens.
Check with your city because some municipalities do give leeway to fosters for rescue groups, especially if they are 501 c groups that help by taking animals from the shelters. Technically you don't "own" the foster dog, the rescue group does and they are with you on a temporary basis. If they don't have a specific exception sometimes they will look the other way, especially if you keep the dogs clean, quiet and the premises do not reek of dog poo.I would like to foster goldens in the future.
