Our Mission

The City of Appleton has adopted state statutes and created city ordinances concerning animal ownership to protect the public health and safety of its citizens and to promote the general welfare of citizens and animals residing within the city.

Primary responsibility is placed on the animal owners to properly maintain and secure their animals so as to prevent them from causing injuries and/or creating nuisances.

Enforcement - Violations of state statutes and city ordinances will be addressed by written warnings and/or citations. Violations of a more serious nature may be referred to the District Attorney’s office for charges.

Municipal Ordinance, Chapter 3

Restraint, Nuisance Animals - The owner or caretaker of any animal shall confine, restrain or maintain control over the animal so that the unprovoked animal does not run at large, attack or injure any person or domesticated animal.

Limit allowed -
No person or household shall keep more than six (6) animals, the maximum number of dogs being three (3), maximum number of rabbits being two (2).

Animal Care - No owner or caretaker of an animal shall fail to provide it with adequate food, water, heating, cooling, ventilation, sanitation, shelter, and medical treatment when necessary.

Abuse of animal - No person shall beat, cruelly ill treat, torment or otherwise abuse an animal.

Removal of waste - All pens, yards, structures or areas where animals are kept shall be maintained in a nuisance free manner. Excrement shall be removed regularly and disposed of properly so not to attract insects or rodents, become unsightly or cause objectionable odors.
