Goats As Pets - New Zoning

Goats as pets
Sturgeon County’s Animal Control Bylaw allows residents who live in the Country Residential or Hamlet district on parcels bigger than one hectare to keep a certain number of goats on their property, county protective services manager Pat Mahoney said in an email – six, in the case of Alcomdale. They are otherwise prohibited in residential areas.

Bylaws ban goats as pets in residential areas of Bon Accord, Gibbons, Redwater, and St. Albert. Pet goats are allowed in Morinville with a unique animal permit.

While he wouldn’t recommend it himself, Russell Gammon of the Canadian Goat Society said some Canadians do keep goats as pets – typically the Nigerian Dwarf or Pygmy breeds due to their small size.

Gammon said goats are social animals, so you might want to keep at least two of them around for companionship. Keep males and females apart unless you want baby goats, and neuter any male goats, as they otherwise become very smelly.
