Multiple States DID NOT Implement A 'Two Pet Maximum' Ordinance

Fact Check

  • by: Lead Stories Staff

There is a trending HOAX story on the internet stating "Multiple States Implement a Two Pet Maximum Ordinance." Unlike China and their child limitations, American's for the most part are allowed to have any amount of pets that they are able to care for, which can sometimes become problematic. It is true that some states do not allow certain types of dogs to be owned due to liability issues. The NOT TRUE story comes from a known satire and hoax site but some people only read the title of the story and end up sharing nothing but LIES.

A little taste of the NOT TRUE story:

State officials from Texas, Arizona, and Missouri have partnered with The Humane Society of the United States, to re-locate all surrendered or displaced pets to shelters throughout the country including Humane Society shelters in New Mexico, Utah, California, Oklahoma, and Kansas, where they will be included and involved in special adopt-a-pet campaigns.

After researching any and all recent publications by The Humane Society, there is not one piece of evidence that backs up this NOT TRUE story. As if the Humane Society isn't currently overloaded with animals, this NOT TRUE story would possibly lead the shelters into bankruptcy for being way over budget. Also, the Humane Society is in no way funded by the government or American citizens' taxes - "The Humane Society is a 501(c) 3 private, non-profit organization that receives no government funding and is not affiliated with any other local or national animal welfare agency."
