In accordance with Village ordinance only two (2) dogs can be kept on any residentially zoned lot/parcel and, again, only two (2) dogs can be kept within any residential rental complex. Any dog at large (off of the owner's premises) must be controlled by the owner with the means of a leash or other personal attention that will reasonably control the conduct and actions of the animal.

No person who has custody of a dog shall walk or escort such animal off the private property of the owner or custodian unless said person is in possession of equipment to clean up any defecation which may be deposited by the animal.

Lost dogs that have been captured by either the Police or by a private citizen should be turned in to the Northeast Wisconsin Veterinarian Service located at 135 Broadway Street, Denmark, WI. 863-8007. Any/all boarding fees will be assessed against the owner(s) of the animal.
