Noble County Commissioners postponed their vote on a proposal that would restrict virtually all breeding in the county, thanks to the significant feedback they received from the community.
Among other provisions, the proposed laws would require a license for anyone who breeds a litter and sells or gives away even one dog. The number of kennel licenses permitted each year will be very limited, and additional licenses could be auctioned off for up to $10,000. Read AKC’s previous alert for more information on these proposals and how they would impact county dog owners.
The hearing has been rescheduled for:
Monday, November 26, 2018
Noble County South Office Complex
2090 N. SR 9
