Dog owners have the responsibility to purchase a dog license for all their dogs, to secure the license tags to the dog collar and to keep the dog on their property. A non-licensed, untagged, dog running at large will be picked up by any of the board members. Contact the Treasurer to obtain your dog license.
A dog license is required for all dogs over the age of 5 months. All dogs must have rabies vaccination and proof of such vaccination must be shown to purchase a license. If purchasing you license when paying property taxes, please pay with a separate check.
Dog license fees are $5 for spayed or neutered dogs and $10 for non-spayed or non-neutered dogs. A late fee of $10.00 per dog must be paid if dogs are not license by January 31st of each year.
