‘Save the Alpacas’ Petition 2019

2050 Miller Ave, Escondido CA 92025

Hi Everyone,

My name is Kelly Thor, and along with Ryan Jimenez, we are standing up against the City of Escondido to save our alpacas from being removed from our property AND we need your help!

My dream growing up was to own a home in Escondido and raise animals. It took us over 2 years, but Ryan and I were fortunate to purchase a home with over half an acre of land in Escondido in May of 2017. We looked into the zoning ordinances for the property to make sure it would fit with the lifestyle we wanted to live – raising different kinds of animals on our property. Over the past 2 years, we have made significant improvements to the property, increasing the value and appearance of the lot. In order to continue our dream of living in Escondido and raising animals, we ask for a small change or amendment to the zoning code.

Alpacas are quiet, gentle, innocuous animals that the City of Escondido regards as cows for purposes of zoning, and therefore requires the owners to remove the alpacas from this property, their home. We request a re-evaluation of the alpaca’s designation within the Escondido Zoning Ordinance, so that alpacas are included in the miniature horse category, due to their similarities in use, characteristics and land requirements.

Please show your support for Saving the Alpacas by signing this petition.

We, the neighbors of Kelly Thor and Ryan Jimenez, petition the City of Escondido to allow two alpacas to be raised on their property, at 2050 Miller Ave, Escondido California 92025.

Thanks in advance for your support!

- Kelly
