How many pets allowed in homes?

How many pets do you think should be allowed in homes?

The number of animals allowed in homes differs in every county, town or individual homeowners' association.

Though there are many governing bodies that has ordinances addressing the number of domestic animals - dogs, cats and other pets - a person may own, for you how many pets should be allowed for every home? and Why?

Some counties, like Lake County, allow homeowners in unincorporated areas who live on between half and one acre of land up to four cats and four dogs. In Palatine, three animals are allowed. Other communities set the limit at two pets per home.

But while numbers vary, most officials agree some restrictions are needed for the health of the animals and humans.
