Council Adopts Changes To Tulsa Animal Ordinances

Apr 29, 2021

City councilors approved several changes to Tulsa’s animal ordinances Wednesday evening.

The process of updating them started in 2018. Among the changes, people will be able to keep five dogs or cats older than four months at home. There are also exemptions to the limit for certain situations, like temporarily caring for a family member’s pet. Previously, people could have no more than three dogs.

A provision letting people have dogs off leash has been removed from the animal code, as has a list of reptiles that are not prohibited to keep at home.

Councilors have not, however, adopted any changes to Tulsa’s regulations on keeping chickens. Those discussions are ongoing.
