Kennel ordinance gets another look Monday

KINGMAN - The Board of Supervisors will again look at changing the county ordinances governing kennels on Monday.

The Board will consider changing the two-dog limit for residents with an acre or less of property it approved during its Oct. 4 meeting back to the original limit of four dogs per resident with an acre or less of property.

Several animal rescue organizations and pet owners have expressed concern about the changes to the kennel ordinances. Many of the rescue organizations have said the changes would put them out of business.

One group, Guardian Angels for Pets, is working to collect enough signatures to put the issue to a vote of the public. The organization will have to collect signatures from more than 4,600 registered voters in order to place the item on the March or May ballot.

The Board meets at 9 a.m. Monday in the County Administration Building, 700 W. Beale St.
