Is it legal to conduct an SPCA spay and neutering clinic in a private residence?

the neighbor across the street has been having these clinics every weekend, and I’ve had to replace my mailbox four times so far because of it. Is this legal to conduct these clinics in a residential area. She uses her barn in the back. Our street is a dead end, with 10 homes on it.

I don't know what city you live in, but you could contact your city hall and ask for the office that handles business licenses/permits. You could find out what the requirements are for running this kind of clinic and whether it is allowed in a private residential area.
