I believe there is only a limit on dogs, and it's two. Three or more must be a commercial breeder or kennel.

Default HOW many DOGS or CATS ALLOWED in Green Bay? Answered


In the city of Green Bay it only states a specific law on the amount of dogs (canine) you can have as pets, which is just 2. You can legally have 2 as pets in your home BUT if you wish to have more you CAN, you just need to apply for a specific license to have more & it's a fairly low cost that you will re-register & license each year.


There is NO law stating of how many cats you can have. HOWEVER, the law DOES state that you can only have as many as you can physically, financially take care of & provide for. If that is only 1 then it is only 1. If that is 10, 20 or 100 then that is up to you to decide given you are ABLE to provide safe, CLEAN, ample care for these cats to live a healthy & happy life. Animal Control by law CAN legally "access" your capabilities if there is a complaint made. My advice to anyone here is.... just be SURE you can take the BEST of care of the ones you do have. Don'y bite off more than you can chew. The animals are depending on YOU to make the tough choices so that they can thrive.... just remember that.


Wisconsin residents can not legally own ANY wild life that is indigenous to our own state. For Example: The Squirrel , the Chipmunk, the Robin & other birds, geese & roaming wildlife. I am not near as familiar with those animals so please do your RESEARCH before taking in ANY such animals because they ARE wild & need special & very specific care & also, you want to make sure it's legal.
