From this document of the municipal code for your town
http://www.ci.wausau.wi.us/codebook/wau08tx.pdf
8.08.120 Number of dogs and cats limited. No more than two dogs and/or three cats, over the age of five months, shall be kept in or upon one residential unit or by one or more persons constituting one residential unit, unless the premises is licensed as a kennel. (Ord. 61-4677 §1(part), 1989.)
the document also has information on getting a kennel licence.
Unfair laws like this are being created all over the country because instead of punishing people who do not take proper care of their animals the goverment decides to punish everyone who owns pets. Interestingly animal rights groups push for these laws and others to work towards the goal of no pet ownership.
Hope this helps you!
