City staff will request that the city amend its ordinance on animals by adopting the existing Los Angeles County code.
Alhambra will make a few revisions to the county code, however. While Los Angeles county allows five cats per residence and three dogs per residence, Alhambra will allow four cats and two dogs. And while the county requires dogs over four months old to be spayed or neutered, Alhambra will require the same of dogs who are six months old. Currently, Alhambra's municipal code does not have a rule on spaying or neutering.
Alhambra will also continue to prohibit stockyards, hog ranches, rodeos, and the ownership of wild animals, all of which are allowed in the county code if the proper permits and licenses are obtained.
City Council usually meets every second and fourth Monday of the month at 5:30 and 7 p.m. at City Hall. Read the complete agenda below. You can also download the document or make it larger using the controls on the bottom.
