Please share this information with anyone in the Washoe County, NV  
area. (Parent Club liaisons Washoe County includes Reno and the  
surrounding areas)


Washoe County’s Regional Animal Services will hold two public  
workshops to discuss proposed changes to the animal control ordinance,  
including requiring kennel permits in the unincorporated areas of the  
county.

The measure will also add provisions for a new “Variance Permit,”  
available to those who own 4 or 5 sterilized dogs (current limit is 3  
dogs). The ordinance will also mandate at-large dogs be microchipped  
upon redemption and makes other changes to the existing animal cruelty  
and dog licensing laws.

Responsible owners and breeders are encouraged to attend the county’s  
public workshops on this proposal to voice their concerns.

The full text of the measure as well as a fact sheet can be found  
online here.

Hobby Kennel Requirements:
Current law requires anyone in the incorporated areas to have a hobby  
kennel license if they own more than 3 adult dogs. To apply for the  
license you must:
·        Allow animal control to inspect the property
·        Specify the number and breed of dogs for which the permit is  
requested
·        Provide construction drawings of the size and locations of  
kennel buildings
·        Comply with required setbacks and specified construction for  
runs and cages
·        Pay the set application fee (current fee is $50)
·        Provide rabies vaccination certificates for each animal

Proposed changes will add requirements for an emergency evacuation  
plan, written consent from a landlord or property owner’s association  
(if applicable) and proof that all animals are microchipped.

Variance Permit Requirements:
Current law requires a hobby kennel permit for anyone in the  
incorporated areas with more than 3 dogs. This will provide a less  
intensive process for those residents with 4 or 5 dogs that are ALL  
sterilized and microchipped. The requirements include:
·        Allow animal control to inspect the property
·        Pay a fee designated by the County Board of Commissioners  
(not provided in this proposal)
·        License each dog individually
·        Applicant can not have more than one violation of the animal  
control code in the previous year
·        Must obtain written permission from a landlord or property  
owner’s association (if applicable)
