Any complaints regarding the number of animal residing in a dwelling unit can be sent to the Residential Section at (414) 286-2268.
No more than four adult dogs, cats and/or rabbits are allowed in any one dwelling unit. In single and two-family dwelling units, a fifth dog, cat and/or rabbit can reside if the owner/tenant has an animal fancier permit obtained through our office. Please refer to our Animal Fees webpage for the cost of the permit. The dwelling unit is also subject to an annual inspection. More frequent inspections must be allowed on a complaint basis. Animal fancier permits are not allowed in multiple dwelling units. Anyone violating this will be subject to prosecution.
