The Kennewick Municipal Code in 18.12.040 allows a resident to have up to 3 of any one kind of animal and a combined total of 6 animals on each residential plat within city limits. Essentially this means that a resident may have 3 dogs and 3 cats—but not 6 dogs. There are exceptions provided if there is a permit issued allowing for additional animals, if the animals are under 10 weeks old (a new litter), or if the animal allowance was grandfathered in as part of an annexation agreement from the county. If you believe a violation of this code has occurred, you may report it to Kennewick Code Enforcement for further investigation.
