ASHEBORO, N.C. — Asheboro residents may soon be allowed to have more pets at their homes.
According to the Courier-Tribune, Asheboro City Council members asked city staff Thursday night to rewrite parts of an animal ordinance. The ordinance currently only lets people living in less than 30,000 square feet to have two dogs and two cats.
Officials say they put the rule in place to prevent animal abuse and neglect.
Asheboro’s Community Development Director suggested raising the number to three dogs and three cats.
The city attorney plans to rewrite the ordinance and city council members will vote at the next meeting in July.
