Okay I have a problem maybe someone can help me. I am trying to get my business license through the City and so I go to zoning and find out that I may not be able to breed....ugh what? It's under review. They said a breeder is a breeder is a breeder regardless if it is a dog, a horse or a small caged critter. Again What?? I know, I know hind sight and I should have checked into this before. I just had no clue. I checked to see if they are legal and I got my USDA license. Now what. I don't want to borrow trouble but felt like this could help some folks who decide to go into breeding. Please check you local city laws and regulations. I also found that I cannot sell anything that I make from my home as that would be considered manufacturing... again what? Am I just explaining what I am doing wrong? All I am making is cage sets and toys for suggies. Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.

Anna

Wow, that just doesn't seem right. I know we need laws to keep things orderly and whatever, but how is that a problem?

I'd keep on it though. My mom had a custom frame shop in a room off our garage when I was growing up. She had a business license and everything, so hopefully you'll be able to get one. Someone there has to realize that what you're doing isn't going to bring a ton of traffic to your neighborhood!

What kills me is it all hinges on whether this one lady approves it or not from Zoning. What if she detests animals...sigh. I plan on appealing it if it gets turned down. The guy that helped me was very nice and knew of sugar gliders. I think if it would of been up to him he would have sent it through. I don't understand how sewing about 5 cage sets a year is manufacturing. I don't do much business of my website. Mostly I sell to folks getting a joey from me. But I wanted to get a business license so I could sell the stealths and maybe some other glider accessories.

If it gets denied, appeal for sure. Zoning laws are there to keep high-traffic businesses out of neighborhoods. Yours shouldn't be denied, in my opinion. Good luck and keep us updated!

Okay guys I have an update. It all worked out. Luckily the nice guy printed out pictures and information to better explain what a sugar glider is. I've been approved. I go down tomorrow. I was so concerned when he told me that someone was turned down for ferrets. Wow I was sooooo depressed even left work early to go work out. Now I am over the top. I just kept thinking what am I going to do should I not get approved. He even said I can sell my cage sets. As long as I don't have a lot of traffic which I don't. Thank you for all your input.

LOL I know right? I love my sign you made for me. Only thing is I cannot have "traffic" in and out. What they told me is if someone purchases a critter from me, I have to take it to them. Meet them somewhere I guess. Not sure how I will do it. I have enjoyed showing off my setup and letting everyone see all my critters frown. I guess if they really want to see my setup they can schedule to come ahead of time to see their baby and to view my setup. Shoot we aren't real social anyway so that's the only time we have visitors. Should I put that info on my website. I don't want folks thinking I am hiding anything by not allowing them to come to my home to pick up.

Plan on lunch with a friend at your house. Then following lunch, he/she can take a glider home with her. I'm betting the city doesn't understand "glider people" and how social we tend to be with each other. I remember when I first got Dixie (my second glider and the first one I picked up). I was at Judie's I think for about 3 hours.

I'm also betting the city is concerned with people coming and going in and out all day long either each day or even several days a week. With what you described, that just isn't going to be happening.

Anna, We run 3 business's here at the Lake. According to the Zoning Commission, they consider 'high traffic' as being more than 10 cars in an 8 hour day.

I'd ask them what they consider high traffic to be in your area.

Nope, I have 6 cages and have babies off and on and well you all know that it takes time for joeys to be born and come oop and then to be weaned and usually if I sell anything off my site for my glider goodies it goes with the joey or is shipped. Shoot I have about 90% less traffic then my neighbor who is a youth minister. They always had cars lining up along the street for some gathering or another.

Thanks you guys for your input, I really appreciate and yes this community rocks...as do suggie people!!!

I called my City to make sure, prior to getting My license. My Address is city, but my house is considered in country, so no worries here. I am glad yours worked out.
