Nadia and Buttercup, our sweet gentle miniature goats, have been ordered to be removed from our property within the next 30 days by Fremont Animal Services.
NO COMPLAINTS HAVE BEEN MADE AGAINST THEM. We listed them as pets when seeking to renew our pet licenses. It was in response to our attempt to follow the law as we knew it that we were notified by Officer Niccols on May 25, 2021 that Fremont Municipal Code has been changed and goats are no longer permitted on residential property in Fremont.
Our family has lived on this farm for generations and kept animals here legally. We were not notified of the change and had no reason to suspect any changes.
Please sign this petition to tell the Fremont City Council that Nadia and Buttercup should be allowed to stay!
*UPDATE* I spoke with Kelly Miott the Animal Services Manager yesterday afternoon (Friday May 28th, 2021) and she is giving us six months to relocate Nadia and Buttercup. That gives us more time to get an exemption or a rule change with the City of Fremont.
