(A) Definition of kennel. The keeping of 4 or more dogs or 4 or more cats on the same premises, whether owned by the same person or not and for whatever purpose kept, shall constitute a “kennel;” except that a fresh litter of pups or kittens may be kept for a period of three months before that keeping shall be deemed to be a “kennel.”
(B) Kennel as a nuisance. Because the keeping of 4 or more dogs or 4 or more cats on the same premises is subject to great abuse, causing discomfort to persons in the area by way of smell, noise, hazard, and general aesthetic depreciation, the keeping of 4 or more dogs or 4 or more cats on the premises is hereby declared to be a nuisance and no person shall keep or maintain a kennel within the city.
Penalty, see § 91.99
