Westerville, OH asked in Animal / Dog Law for Ohio

Q: How many dogs can a single household house in the city of Westerville Ohio?

I'm curious because I would like to care for dogs in my home and wanted to know what the city deemed appropriate for one household. I figured if I knew the number it may help my application for a variance or special use permit. I personally would never house more than 5 dogs at one time. Thank you!
