    Hi there, hope you are enjoying BYC! :frow

    I suggest calling your local animal control office or county code enforcement and asking.
    Newburyport Animal Shelter

    In general if you are zoned for livestock in a rural setting, the answer is often yes you are allowed so many, certain size animals depending on your lots size.

    If you live in a city not zoned for agriculture, the answer is generally no. While people like myself may keep a "pet pig"... they are not deemed pets by most agencies and will not be regarded as such.

    Good luck! :fl
