Provide more security for your pet. Lost pets wearing current licenses find their way home sooner than those without. Pets without a collar and tags are often assumed to be a stray and never make their way home to their family. Let people know that you care about your pet. Keep your animal's vaccinations and licenses current. Place a collar with current tags on you pet. If we can locate you, we can get your pet home to you. Licenses can be obtained from the Village Clerk. A record of vaccination is required.
Ordinance #102 now requires ALL DOGS & CATS to be licensed. Residents will be allowed only 3 dogs or 3 cats, or any combination thereof. Licenses can be obtained from the Village Clerk durning normal business hours. A record of vaccination is required.
