Revised Ordinances of Honolulu Regarding Animal Nuisances
Oahu has an animal nuisance law that the Hawaiian Humane Society is contracted to enforce by the City and County of Honolulu. Chapter 7-2.2 of the Revised Ordinances of Honolulu defines an animal nuisance as:
- Any animal making noise continuously for 10 minutes or intermittently for 30 minutes or more to the disturbance of a person.
- If an animal barks, whines, howls, crows, cries or makes any other unreasonable noise. Noise is unreasonable if the nature and circumstances surrounding the animal nuisance interferes with reasonable communication, work, rest, recreation or sleep.
Section 7-2.5 of the Revised Ordinances also restricts the number of chickens and peafowl to not exceed two (2) per household, except in areas where more animals are allowed. Violations may lead to fines, including a first-time animal nuisance violation of $50 up to a maximum fine of $1,000. Animal nuisance complaints cannot be anonymous.
