Petitioning Grand Forks City Ordinance

A Pet Friendlier Grand Forks

Repeal Chapter 9, Article 1 11-0123 and 11-0124.

11-0123 states that in a single family house, no more than two dogs over six months can be kept.

11-0124 states that no more than one dog over six months can be kept in a multiple family place (apartment complex with more than four apartments)

As a college student with pets and looking for housing, I have many difficulties Grand Forks just isn't that pet friendly. I have multiple pets, and they are my family. I would never think about getting rid of them, or having to leave them. Property management around here has taken these ordinances and extended it to cats too. Most places only allow one pet per unit, if that.

I understand that animal hoarding can be a problem, and that could be a reason to have this ordinance. Yet responsible ownership from people who love and take care of their animals and their dwelling shouldn't be a problem or reason for this ordinance. Let's repeal these laws, and if necessary, extend something specifically to the issue of animal hoarding and irresponsible ownership.
