I live in the City of Sunnyvale, I own a dog(s)


Do you support adding new, comprehensive requirements for the proper care and attention to animals such as food and feeding, water, veterinary treatment, exercise, and sanitation?
I don’t know


Comments:
Yes, and by care I mean changing the current laws to allow citizens of Sunnyvale to provide daycare and petsitting services which are truly needed in the community.


Do you support increasing the maximum number of any combination of dogs and cats per household from three to four?
Yes


Comments:
I think the amount of animals per household should increase - especially for petsitters who provide valuable services to people in the community. The visiting animals at a sitters' home should not count as their own pets.


Do you support limiting the number of litters from all dogs and cats per household to one per year to reduce the number of animals entering shelters and for population control?
Yes


Do you support prohibiting the feeding of wild animals with limited exceptions i.e. bird feeders, lawful trapping?
Yes


The state requires that dogs be licensed and immunized against rabies in the municipality where they reside. Do you support requiring all veterinarians in the city to provide copies of current rabies immunization certificates for all dogs to Animal Control?
I don’t know


Do you support the following regulations in designated off leash dog parks? (check all that apply):
no animals other than dogs, no person shall have more than two dogs, dogs must be vaccinated and licensed in accordance with law, no person under the age of 13 may be in charge of dogs


Do you support broadening the section addressing nuisances by noisy dogs to nuisances by noisy animals (e.g. parrots)?
Yes


Do you support requiring a dog to be spayed or neutered in order for a senior (65 and older) to qualify for a free dog license?
Yes


Do you support prohibiting roosters over four months old? (Rooters often begin to crow around this age.)
I don’t know


Do you support prohibiting livestock (e.g. horses, goats, pigs, sheep) in residential zoning districts?
Yes


Do you support limiting the number of small animals (e.g. rabbits, chickens) to no more than six per household?
No


Do you support prohibiting small animals within 20 feet of any inhabitable dwelling unit, other than that of the owner or custodian?
Yes


The current code requires a resident to exhibit their dog to an Animal Control officer as part of a dangerous or diseased animal investigation. Do you support broadening this section from exhibiting dogs only to any animal subject to an investigation?

Yes


What category best describes your age:
18-29


Overall comments:
Please consider updating laws to reflect the populations' current needs - dogsitters who operate legitimate businesses (with licenses) using sites like Rover and Wag! rely on watching other peoples' pets to make a living. If the animals don't cause a nuisance at someone's home, the number of dogs one sits shouldn't arbitrarily be set. This crackdown has affected an amazing, caring sitter who we trust with our dog more than we trust ourselves.

Comments:
I support the idea so long as the only cost is enforcement when someone doesn't comply, not monitoring.

this sounds like it will increase costs (vets to provide, someone in Animal Control to maintain)

the animal may rarely go outside and then is unlikely to breed

Comments:
The proper function of government is protecting individual rights


Do you support increasing the maximum number of any combination of dogs and cats per household from three to four?
I don’t know


Comments:
The only considerations on a per case basis should be whether the animals constitute a health or nuisance problem to others, thus violating their rights, regardless of the quantity

Comments:
Government should protect the rights of individuals, not violate them


The state requires that dogs be licensed and immunized against rabies in the municipality where they reside. Do you support requiring all veterinarians in the city to provide copies of current rabies immunization certificates for all dogs to Animal Control?
No


Comments:
The burden should be on the owner to provide that information, not the veterinarian. The city has no right to enslave someone for something that is not their property


Do you support the following regulations in designated off leash dog parks? (check all that apply):
no animals other than dogs, no person shall have more than two dogs, dogs must be vaccinated and licensed in accordance with law, no person under the age of 13 may be in charge of dogs


Comments:
Off leash dogs must be supervised closely to prevent children and other dogs from being mauled.


Do you support broadening the section addressing nuisances by noisy dogs to nuisances by noisy animals (e.g. parrots)?
Yes


Comments:
“Coming to nuisance” should be the guiding principle


Do you support requiring a dog to be spayed or neutered in order for a senior (65 and older) to qualify for a free dog license?
No


Comments:
No one should get a free dog license. Everyone should be treated equally before the law and pay the same amount.


Do you support prohibiting roosters over four months old? (Rooters often begin to crow around this age.)
No

Do you support prohibiting small animals within 20 feet of any inhabitable dwelling unit, other than that of the owner or custodian?
Yes


Comments:
It is a property rights issue. The rights of the inhabitant and property owner must be protected by the government. Protecting individual rights is the only legitimate role of government.

The laws must be based on principles, and not concrete bound. The legal principles must be “Coming to nuisance” and human health.

Do you support limiting the number of litters from all dogs and cats per household to one per year to reduce the number of animals entering shelters and for population control?
Yes


Comments:
Campaigns to support local shelters/educate on this topic would be very helpful in encouraging animal adoption. However, since many people rent here and shelters are full of restricted breeds, these dogs still have issues finding good homes because people can’t adopt them.


Do you support prohibiting the feeding of wild animals with limited exceptions i.e. bird feeders, lawful trapping?
Yes

Comments:
No unattended children should be in a dog park, dogs asked to leave by majority of park should do so, dogs who have not been neutered should not be onsite, puppies who have not received all vaccinations not allowed, Dogs should wear collars, dogs must be under supervision at all times


Do you support broadening the section addressing nuisances by noisy dogs to nuisances by noisy animals (e.g. parrots)?
No


Comments:
Not all animals are equally as trainable as the dog.


Do you support requiring a dog to be spayed or neutered in order for a senior (65 and older) to qualify for a free dog license?

Do you support limiting the number of small animals (e.g. rabbits, chickens) to no more than six per household?

Comments:
6 of one type, yes. 2 of each, not really. I grew up with lots of animals in a residential area and it helped me become a more informed and compassionate animal owner later in life.


Do you support prohibiting small animals within 20 feet of any inhabitable dwelling unit, other than that of the owner or custodian?
No


Comments:
Cats are creatures that wander. We have to learn to respect their nature in order to live peacefully with them. This type of law will just increase calls to Animal Control.


The current code requires a resident to exhibit their dog to an Animal Control officer as part of a dangerous or diseased animal investigation. Do you support broadening this section from exhibiting dogs only to any animal subject to an investigation?

No

Overall comments:
Add turf or grass back at Las Palmas dog park for the large park. Fix the water “stations” on the large dog park side. With water in the buckets, dogs often play/pee in the buckets - leading to unclean water. Gallons are thrown out daily in this park alone. Add some lighting for winter so we can use the parks later than 4:00. Consider an auto shut gate for the 2 gate system. Often people don’t use this correctly and dogs get loose.

Do you support increasing the maximum number of any combination of dogs and cats per household from three to four?
I don’t know


Comments:
Four sounds like a lot to me for one house. Is there anything written about how much space and the size of the creatures? Having four Pomeranians is not the same as four great Danes.


Do you support limiting the number of litters from all dogs and cats per household to one per year to reduce the number of animals entering shelters and for population control?
Yes


Comments:
People should not be breeding creatures for money.


Do you support prohibiting the feeding of wild animals with limited exceptions i.e. bird feeders, lawful trapping?
Yes


The state requires that dogs be licensed and immunized against rabies in the municipality where they reside. Do you support requiring all veterinarians in the city to provide copies of current rabies immunization certificates for all dogs to Animal Control?
I don’t know


Comments:
Does this mean added paperwork for veterinary offices? If a dog already has the rabies tag on their collar, why would you need to look at paperwork? Animal control could request documents for a dog that does not have a tag. Could this be information that is added to microchips?


Do you support the following regulations in designated off leash dog parks? (check all that apply):
dogs must be vaccinated and licensed in accordance with law


Comments:
How many people are bringing non-stop to dog parks? Seems odd to write that into law. Dog walkers should be able to bring their charges to the dog park, even if its more than two. And, if the legal number of dogs per household is four, you can't then limit two at the park, that's dumb. A child should be able to learn the responsibility of looking after another being. It should be phrased, persons under age 13 must be accompanied by an adult.


Do you support broadening the section addressing nuisances by noisy dogs to nuisances by noisy animals (e.g. parrots)?
I don’t know


Comments:
Noise nuisance is SO subjective its annoying. If a neighbor does not like non-human animals they are going to complain regardless of if there is a noise issue or not. Humans are far more noisy and are allowed to get away with it.


Do you support requiring a dog to be spayed or neutered in order for a senior (65 and older) to qualify for a free dog license?
I don’t know


Comments:
Do the seniors have to pay for the procedure? Doesn't that negate the point?


Do you support prohibiting roosters over four months old? (Rooters often begin to crow around this age.)
No


Comments:
If someone has a rooster, what are they supposed to do with it at four months? Either they are allowed or not.


Do you support prohibiting livestock (e.g. horses, goats, pigs, sheep) in residential zoning districts?
No


Comments:
This is another matter of looking at space and size of creature. The amount of space a horse needs is not the same as a goat. Would all pigs be considered "livestock"? Pigs that are slaughtered are very different from say a potbelly.


Do you support limiting the number of small animals (e.g. rabbits, chickens) to no more than six per household?
I don’t know


Comments:
Same issue as mentioned before, size of "household" should determine number of residents.


Do you support prohibiting small animals within 20 feet of any inhabitable dwelling unit, other than that of the owner or custodian?
I don’t know


Comments:
I do not understand this question. What is the point?


The current code requires a resident to exhibit their dog to an Animal Control officer as part of a dangerous or diseased animal investigation. Do you support broadening this section from exhibiting dogs only to any animal subject to an investigation?

I don’t know


Comments:
My answer would be yes if by "any animal" you include humans. There are plenty of dangerous and diseased among that group.


What category best describes your age:
30-39


Overall comments:
I appreciate the effort being put forth for this. However, I don't see anything stating what the penalty would be for those found neglecting the creatures in a human's care. If this code is from the '70's I doubt the penalty was anything more than removing the creature from the premises. A human capable of doing harm is capable of doing harm, period. Also, it would have been good to have a link to the code so that we could read through it and have a better idea of what we're talking about here.

These are fine, but Sunnyvale lacks enough dog parks. I think part of Baylands Park could be dog friendly. These laws just further regulate, but I’d prefer to see them supplemented with something equally positive for pet owners who follow the rules.

I only say no, because I don't want the city in my business. Where were you guys when Apple puts on the huge events and shuts down roads? That is where your focus should be.

Holy crap. Guess what... Dogs Bark. It's what they do. Now, if you could help me with the bratty kids that live behind us, or the other ones that throw parties all the time, I'd love help there. Or the ones behind us that did construction from 8 am till 7 pm Monday through Sunday for 6 weeks. .

It cost me $3000 for them to tell me my dog was getting old. Oh, Thank you. Got it. Why not help take down the cost so people can afford to take in animals that need homes.

You guys need to focus more on the City Planning and how miserable you have made it for all of us. I live off of Wolfe and have gone through YEARS of construction for our Roads. (The area by El Camino has changed SO many times). Now we have everyone cutting and speeding through our area to avoid Homestead. You need to stay in your lane and have a better focus on what is important.
