ATTENTION DOG OWNERS
It is required by City Ordinance that all dogs 4 months old or older be registered. Registration is required to be renewed every January. You may register your dog at City Hall, 118 N.E. Main Street. You will need to bring proof of current rabies vaccination with you. The registration fee is $5.00 per dog for previously registered dogs brought in between January and March 1 or new dogs or puppies brought in any time. Any dog previously registered in a prior year brought in after March 1 will be assessed a late charge of $10.
Did you know? There is a leash law within the City Limits. Ensure your dogs are tethered on a leash at all times when off your property. Violators could face up to a $500.00 fine (plus court costs).
It is unlawful to chain dogs to trees, dog houses or any other object. In the event a dog is kept in a pen, a pen with dimensions of at least 10'x10' feet and a shade tarp must be provided.
Remember!!! To always have some form of identification on your pets at all times to ensure their prompt, safe return home.
