Dog Licensing

All dogs in the village must be licensed and vaccinated for rabies. Licenses are valid for one year (expire December 31st) and must be renewed annually. The dog owner must take care of this responsibility each year by April 1st.

NO LICENSE WILL BE ISSUED WITHOUT A CERTIFICATE OF RABIES VACCINATION. All dogs 5 months and older must have a rabies vaccination by a veterinarian. This is a state imposed law. See State Statute.

A Certificate of Rabies Vaccination (a vaccination receipt is not sufficient) is required when applying for dog license. If you pay for a dog license by mail, please include a stamped, self-addressed envelope. We will return your certificate(s) along with your dog tag(s). Certificate of rabies vaccination will be returned with dog license.

If you no longer have a dog that was licensed in the village last year, please notify the Village Office by mail or phone so we can remove your dog(s) from our records.
