There's a push to change an animal ordinance in Gaffney. According to our coverage partners at the Herald-Journal, a man facing a $1,100 fine for violations, is asking the city to change its laws.

An ordinance passed in 2011, calls for anyone who has three or more dogs outside, to provide each animal with a kennel.

The Cherokee County Humane Society supports changing the ordinance. The President of the organization asked council to modify it to read that owners of three or more dogs outside for breeding or profit, should purchase a kennel license and provide a kennel facility. They also want to limit the number of dogs people can keep for pleasure, to three.

The police committee is considering the changes. To read the complete article, click here.
