Number of animals Allowed per Utah Cities

Have you ever wondered how many dogs

you can legally have in each city?

I have been asked where can a client live with four dogs and two cats and a parrot? Most of us have quite a few furry family members and it's always nice to know what the law really allows.  Recently a client compiled the following list to clear things up.  The laws are always changing so if you see anything that you know to be incorrect, please let us know.
