Residents are reminded that Village ordinance limits the number of pets allowed to five (5) per household. Households with more than a combined total of five (5) dogs and/or cats over the age of three (3) months who can document ownership of specific dogs and cats in excess of the combined total allowed on the date the ordinance was approved may continue to own their existing dogs and/or cats, but may not acquire any new dogs or cats until such time as they are below the maximum number allowed. The burden of proof of ownership prior to the date of approval of this section is on the owner.
