What are our rights regarding dogs and city ordinance? How? 4 Answers as of September 02, 2015

The town we live in is harassing us about our dogs. We can't chain them up, can't let them run around, so we bought a huge kennel cage for them put them to the back beside the house and they say that’s unsanitary. We rent and the land lord won't let us put a fence to fence in the backyard and we can't put the cage there because it slopes they say they are going to fine us and take our dogs what are our rights.

You need to consult a lawyer who is acquainted with your municipal ordinances, and the ways you can seek exceptions. You might also consider moving, which might relieve a lot of stress. Good Luck.

I would have to see the ordinances, but it sounds from your description that you are unable to stay within them. Looks like you might be wanting to look for new homes for your dogs. Good luck.

You have to restrain the dogs. You cannot let them run wild. You cannot abuse them. So,either get rid of the dogs or move out into the country. The city is not going to conform to you, you are going to conform to the city rules, or find yourself in court.
