Why the need for a Large Commercial Breeder Ordinance?

North Carolina and especially Pitt County is a place where many breeders choose to locate to operate their businesses due to lack of regulations. It is our desire that all animals in Pitt County are treated and cared for humanely and for citizens to be sold healthy animals. The standards set forth for those that qualify are the same standards that North Carolina law establishes for all animal shelters in Pitt County. We feel these rules and regulations are reasonable and the annual permit fee of $50 is not excessive. These rules and regulations go into effect on November 20, 2018.
