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 your 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 dogsandcats 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 during normal business hours. Property owners will not have to license cats until January 1, 2014. A Record of vaccination is required.
If you have a lost pet, please contact the Police Dept. or Public Works Office. The Village has a kennel to house lost pets until the owner(s) can be contacted.
Ordinance #102 defines animal control by the following:
All dogs must be on a leash or chain not to exceed 6 feet in length and must be in the hands of the person controlling the dog.
All persons having custody or control of any dog must keep the dog in an enclosure; be kept on an appropriate chain or tie not to exceed 6 feet in length; in an enclosed yard, whether walled or fenced, or in any other appropriate restraining enclosure. Underground “silent fencing” must also meet the requirements of the ordinance.
Dogs must be kept at least 6 feet from any public walk, street, neighboring driveway or yard. Please keep in mind that the Village Parks and DNR trail are included in these regulations.
