FAIRFIELD, Ohio (AP) — A woman in southwest Ohio with seven dogs is fighting a local zoning rule that limits residents to two pets.
Karen Glardon of Fairfield says her dogs provide therapy for her as she wrestles with multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Thursday (http://cin.ci/16a8Ixh ) that Glardon and her daughter are going before the Fairfield Board of Zoning Appeals next week to fight the rule.
The paper says that Fairfield's nearly 30-year-old pet regulation allow two adult dogs or cats older than four months old on a residential lot.
It says owners must apply for a kennel license for additional animals, although the city doesn't allow kennels on residential property.
Fairfield Mayor Ron D'Epifanio says Fairfield is becoming an aging city but shouldn't be a decaying city.
