Standards for Keeping Animals

Collier County Land Development Code (LDC)

Ordinance 04-41, as amended


The following information is taken from the Collier County Land Development Code,

Ordinance 04-41, as amended, and is being provided to users outside the Community

Development and Environmental Services Division in an effort to consolidate information now found in various sections of the Code. In some cases, information was inadvertently omitted from the new Code (04-41) when it superseded the previous Code (Ordinance 91-102). In such cases, the setbacks and standards of the previous Code will apply until the corrections are made to the new Code. Every effort has been made to ensure that the information in this document is accurate; however, users are warned that if this information conflicts with that incorporated in the existing LDC Ordinance 04-41, as amended, the LDC governs, and users are advised to consult the Code as needed.

Turkeys, chickens, ducks, geese, pigs, horses, cows, goats, hogs and the like are prohibited in residential zoned district. In the Estates Zoned District, you can have a total of 25 fowl/ poultry; 2 hoofed animals allowed per acre (such as horses, goats, cows). NO pigs/hogs allowed.
