Domesticated Animals

Chapter 4 of the City Code regulates the keeping of domesticated animals.  Dogs and cats kept in the City are required to be licensed.  

Domesticated Animal Complaints

The City contracts with Ramsey County Sheriff's Department to handle all domestic animal complaints. Residents who are concerned about an issue related to domesticated animals should call the sheriff's non-emergency number of 651-767-0640. The Sheriff's Department will dispatch someone for the situation if it involves domesticated animals (dogs & cats) only.    

Living With Wildlife

Arden Hills is fortunate to have a topography that includes wooded areas, wetlands, and lakes that are home to a variety of wildlife. Unfortunately, wildlife can cause damage to vegetation, leave behind waste, damage property, and, in rare situations, become aggressive.

The City does not have jurisdiction over wildlife or nuisance animals. Taking (i.e., capturing, relocating, or killing) nuisance animals is addressed in Minnesota State Statutes.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources provides information on living with wildlife:
