Keeping Animals

Please consider the following points carefully when keeping animals:

  • Are structures, buildings, enclosures or areas which the animal has access to clean and sanitary?
  • Can you dispose of bedding, floor covering, Manure or waste food?
  • Will the animals cause any nuisance to neighbours through smell or noise?
  • Are your fences adequate?
  • Can you provide a lifelong home for this animal?
  • Is your property large enough to cater for the animal?
