These sample provisions establish limits on the number of animals that may be maintained by individual households. Some jurisdictions require that households having more than a certain number of animals (usually three or four dogs or cats) obtain a hobby kennel license. Others simply place a fixed limit on the number of animals permitted, and still others have further variations. Shoreline has no restriction on the number of cats kept inside. Wenatchee provides for an excess animal license and Brier provides for additional pets under a conditional use permit. In residential zones in the more rural counties, animal regulations tend to be based on the size of the lot.
