For those of you in Texas, especially in Houston. Do you know of any law that make it illegal to breed dogs?? What is consider illegal breeding?? I watch ANimal Rescue Houston all the time and see so many breeders on t.v, but I don't know if there are other factors that get them in trouble or is it just the fact that they breeding dogs in city limits??? Is there such a law that only allow a certain amount of dogs per house whole??? Taking animal cruelty out of this equation. What is illegal about breeding???
To the best of knowledge most places have a "dog or animal limit" inside the city limits. For instance , where we live in Mississippi there is a 6 dog limit in the city. When we were moving here from up north it's one of the reasons we ended up in ms. Florida has a 2 or 3 dog limit depending on whcih county you live in.
I briefly searched. Didn't find houston specifically, but there are a lot of places that inside city limits limit the number of adult dogs to 3-6 (exact number depending upon place) and some places allow you to have say 3 adult dogs and a litter.
thank you for the info.. it was very helpful.. the thing is i'm not sure if i'm in the Houston City limits.. last time i had an accident close to my house, I can't report it with HPD.. I had to go to the sheriff dept. for Harris County... how can I find out if i'm in the Houston City Limit??? Also Houston City limits prohits firework and have strict fines. However, we can have fireworks in my neighborhood. Does that answer my question???
Critketmom: HI there..hope you can help answer me... since you do live outside of Houston City Limits... what do you know about this subject??? What is the law in your area concerning the amount of dogs you can have???
sexcbrucelee, I do live in Harris County. Out where I live how many dogs you can have and other rules are decided by the Homeowners Association of each subdivision or community. If you tell me what area you live in I can probably tell you if you are in Houston City Limits.
Thanks guys but I decide to keep what I do on the DL. I mean i'm not hurting anyone and I am not cruel toward my dogs. So therefore you all won't be seeing me ANimal Rescue Houston...ehhehehehheh I just hate people putting restriction what I can and cannot do on my property. As I state in the other post "kennel license" I think I am doing ok by my dogs and that I have a nice set up for them to live and play.
