How Many, What Type, and What Kind?

  • Published
Military Family Housing restricts the type and number of domesticated animals in each housing unit.  Department of Defense Policy prohibits the following breeds of dog in Military Family Housing: pit bulls, rottweilers, doberman pinschers and wolf hybrids, as well as any mix with these breed types. The pit bull category is expanded to include breeds such as the American Bull Terrier. This policy has no waiver authority. Additionally, the DoD has issued new guidance in 2017 on the classification of "emotional support animals" and does NOT consider a class of service animal under the Americans with Disabilities Act. The full policy regarding pets in Okinawa Military Family Housing can be accessed here.   

The quick rule is: two pets of any combination of cats or unrestricted breed dogs per family housing unit. Fostered pets are included in this number.
