LA County Supervisors will discuss a motion on Tuesday to prepare an ordinance to allow people to have pets in all county-funded housing.

County Supervisors Hilda Solis and Kathryn Barger say low-income people are often forced to choose between having a pet or paying more for housing.  The motion they will introduce proposes a rule to make all county-funded housing pet-friendly. That will reduce barriers to affordable housing as well as alleviate pressure on animal welfare organizations.
