A new town ordinance in Meire Grove, Minnesota means the Theiler family has to get rid of three of their dogs.

Last year, the town of 179 people had a new ordinance pass, saying the number of dogs a person can own is now only 2. The Theiler's have five.

The family has started a petition online to keep their dogs.

It’s now a misdemeanor to have more than 2 dogs.
