The Village of Allouez Parks, Recreation, and Forestry Department would like to remind all residents in Allouez of the rules and responsibilities of pet ownership.
We encourage the use Allouez parks and trails by families, including our the four legged members, but when doing so all pets must:
- Be on a leash of not more than 6 feet in length
- Under the owner’s control at all times.
There are a few areas in our parks where pets are still not allowed including:
- Inside park buildings
- On sport fields
- Within playgrounds
- Around picnic areas.
It is also the responsibility of the pet owner or custodian to immediately clean up all waste or defecation and properly dispose of it. The person walking the pet shall have in their possession equipment or bags to properly clean up all waste generated by the animal. Failure of a person to abide by these ordinances could result in a fine, loss of driver’s license, and /or jail time.
In general we are reminding pet owners to control and clean up after their animal because it is not only the right thing to do, but it is also the law.
