Proposal to cancel kennel licenses stirs debate in Idaho Fal

Proposed changes to Idaho Falls' animal ordinance have some worried. Luke Jones reports.


Thursday night, Idaho Falls City Council voted to table proposed changes to the city's animal ordinance.

The proposal would have upped the number of dogs allowed in a single home from two to three, but would have done away with kennel licenses. These licenses allow up to five dogs in a single home.

Thursday, Local News 8 spoke to a woman who said the proposal would have made it impossible for her to continue the rescue dog operation she runs from Idaho Falls garage.

Another part of the proposal would have mandated that all pets adopted from the city's animal shelter be spayed or neutered.
