Backyard Chicken Hen
In July 2014, the Firestone Board of Trustees approved the legal
ownership and keeping of backyard chicken hens within the Town limits of
Firestone as per Ordinance No. 848. A permit is required before one can
legally own and keep chicken hens within the Town limits and is available through the town clerk's office.
Please Note: Many homeowner association bylaws do not allow chickens or poultry of any kind. Applicants should check their HOA bylaws to confirm that chicken hens are permitted prior to filling out a Town application.
Barking Dog Disturbance
Animal control will investigate barking dog disturbance complaints. The dog must be barking in a constant, excessive, continuous, persistent, habitual manner to be considered a nuisance.
Responsible Pet Program
The Firestone Police Department Animal Control division has begun an education program for responsible pet ownership. Through ongoing educational social media posts on the police department’s Facebook page, local pet owners will learn the importance of vaccinations, spay and neutering, licensing, leashes and more.
Residents are not permitted to own or posses any vicious or aggressive animals.
