Owner Responsibilities

Every owner of a dog is required to obtain a license for their dog. Please ensure that the tag is attached to the dog at all times when he/she is not on your property. A dog tag is the best form of ID for your dog. If your dog is lost or strays, it is the best insurance that you will get him/her home safely.

The following is a listing of fees for dog licenses per year: 
-First dog in any household $10.00
-Second dog in any household $20.00
-Third dog in any household $30.00 per dog
-Kennel License Fee $60.00

Invoices will be sent out at the beginning of each year to registered dog owners.  If you are unsure if your dog is registered in the Township, contact the Township office at 519-271-0619.
