Prior to applying for a kennel permit you must first determine if your property is zoned for a kennel. You must have a minimum of 2 acres of property and your kennels must have a setback of at least 150 feet from any structure. Prior to putting in a kennel, contact Butte County Development Services to determine if you qualify for a kennel use permit.
