All dogs in the Village of Holmen must be vaccinated against rabies and must be licensed by five months of age. A dog license can be purchased between January 1st and March 31st to avoid a late fee and citation. Proof of current rabies vaccination is required to license your dog. The fee to license your dog is $12 for an altered dog and $23 for an unaltered dog. If you fail to license your dog by March 31st, you must purchase a dog license from the County Clerk’s office and pay a late fee of $25 plus the cost of the dog license. This also applies if you get a new dog and fail to license it within 30 days, your puppy turns 5 months old and you fail to license it, or if you move into the Village with a dog and fail to license it within 30 days. The Village of Holmen does not license cats.
*14-29. The keeping of a large number of dogs or cats within the village for a considerable period of time detracts from and, in many instances, is detrimental to, healthful and comfortable life in such areas. The keeping of a large number of dogs or cats is, therefore, declared a public nuisance.
Under no circumstances, shall any person residing within any one residential unit or any one home located on any residentially zoned property or lot, own, harbor, board, or keep in its possession more than three dogs nor more than three cats at any one time, and no more than a maximum of four animals of any species (dogs and cats) may be permitted on any residentially zoned property or lot at any one time, except that a litter of pups or kittens or a portion of a litter may be kept for not more than five months from birth.
