All dogs and cats must have a current license issued by the City Treasurer or the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC). 3. Dogs and cats over three (3) months of age shall have current immunization against rabies with owners maintaining proof of such vaccination. 4. Animals maintained outside shall have appropriate food, water, and shelter. 5. No household is permitted more than two (2) dogs or cats, or any combinations thereof, which are over the age of three (3) months, unless a person holds a valid animal fancier permit. The Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC) provides a variety of veterinary services at a minimal charge to county residents; see http://www.madacc. org for additional information.
