Dog Control

While pets are welcome in our Village, dog licences are required and irresponsible owners are subject to prosecution. Dogs running at large are subject to impoundment.

If you are new to the Village or have a new dog, you need to register your pet at the Village office to get a dog licence. If you pet is spayed or neutered, documentation is required when first registering your dog. 

Licenses must be renewed annually at the beginning of each year before January 31st.

Dog License Fees
License Fee for each neutered/spayed dog $15.00
License Fee for each unaltered dog $35.00

When licenses are renewed after January 31st of the current year there is a penalty.

Late License Renewal Penalty $10.00

Dogs must be wearing their dog license tag while off the owner's property. If a dog is caught without wearing their license tag there is a fine.

Owner of a licensed dog not wearing a license tag while off the Owner's property $50.00
Replacement License Tag Fee $5.00

There is a maximum of 3 dogs per owner. Any person with more will be grandfathered, however if any dogs over the 3 limit no longer exist, they will not be permitted to be replaced. Grandfathered in owners of more than 3 dogs will be subject to a Dog Fanciers Fee as well as a the licensing fees for the dogs.
