Draft Inclusive Pet Bylaw

If your community allows only certain kinds of pets, write a bylaw that states which types of animals are welcome, and say that “all other types”  of animals are forbidden. If you try to specify the animals that aren’t allowed, you’re bound to leave something out. Worse, if you allow pets and think that means you don’t have to write a pet bylaw at all, you could be in a for a big surprise. Let’s say you have no pet policy and state law doesn’t prohibit people from owning exotic cats, like cougars.
