Every dog and cat old enough for a rabies inoculation should be registered and licensed with the Village. Fill out a Pet License Application for each animal.
Pet licenses must be renewed annually before June 30. The cost of a tag is $7.50. This fee increases to $10 as of July 1 of each year. A current Certificate of Rabies Inoculation supplied by a registered veterinarian must be presented at the time of tag purchase.
Residents are reminded that in March of 2017, the Village Board of Trustees passed an ordinance limiting the number of pets allowed to five (5) per household. Households with more than a combined total of five (5) dogs and/or cats over the age of three (3) months who can document ownership of specific dogs and cats in excess of the combined total allowed on the date the ordinance was approved may continue to own their existing dogs and/or cats, but may not acquire any new dogs or cats until such time as they are below the maximum number allowed. The burden of proof of ownership prior to the date of approval of this section is on the owner.
Tag purchases can be made 3 ways:

Dropping off renewal card with payment in the silver drop box located outside of the Village Hall (tags will again be mailed back to you)
