A: The zoning ordinance allows the keeping of pets for other than commercial purposes. The keeping of cats is limited to no more than nine per household. The keeping of dogs as pets is limited by lot size. You may keep up to four dogs with no minimum land area requirement. For five or six dogs, at least 25,000 square feet of land area is required, and for seven or more dogs, 40,000 square feet is required, with 5,000 square feet for each additional dog over seven. In RA, RLD, or R1, a commercial kennel is allowed by special exception, in accordance with 18-11-127.
Are you planning on renting or buying? If purchasing, I'm not aware of any areas (other than some condo buildings) that would put a restriction on the number of pets. If you are renting, the difficulty would be finding a pet friendly Landlord. We do that all the time.
