It is not King County Animal Control- Federal Way has their own Animal Control. Ava, I am nearby and can help give your goats haven until you get this figured out. And to all of the folks who are claiming goats are outside animals- you know nothing about goats. They are easier to housebreak than dogs, as well as less allergenic, cleaner, and quieter. They are incredibly affectionate and bond quickly- and yes, they do best in pairs. Pygmies are small- do your research before you criticize...

My Nigerian Dwarf (larger than a Pygmy) is an inside goat.

I have nigerian dwarf goats. I live in tacoma wa. If you need some where to bord them I am more than willing to let you keep them with my small herd for no charge until you can get it resolved. My facebook is ryan slater.

What about ADA???If they're both registered as service animals, maybe they can help her fight it???

Yes, that is what we are trying to do. We are going to fight the law and if all else fails, we will certify juju.

Take this girl's goats? I think not! We have house trained goats and I know of many others. Two Pygmy goats in a home is entirely resonable.

There are some counties in eastern wa and north idaho that allow minature luvestock in residential neighborhoods as long as neighbors do not complain - maybe use that with county officials - look up coeur d'alene idaho - as I know they allow it .... used to luve there and sell miniature dairy goats to people - good luck

I hope you get to keep you goats, Ava....they are certainly no bigger than most dogs, and smaller than some dogs, too! Are they claiming it's because of size or because they are considered "farm animals?" I would look into the details of what they are saying is law there. Is a small clutch of chickens forbidden, also? Good luck! I will keep you and your sweet goat friends in my prayers!

Both. Goats are considered "large domestic animals so I would need 2 acres

Good luck Ava, I have dogs for special needs but I know any animal if trained right can be a spcial needs animal I believe it is the same thing as taking away someones wheelchair or any kind of tools or helpers they may have. I feel this is not right at all. You will be in my prayers fight until you have no fight left in you to keep them!

Pygmy goats are people loving animals. They are more like dogs than any other. I've raised them for 26 years, they pose NO THREAT to anyone. Good luck little one! There are animals being abused and neglected and Animal Control is threatening a little girl. Law or not...exceptional circumstances. You have my support Ava.
