Dog License Renewals Due Soon

Posted: December 11, 2014

The Vernon Township Animal Control Officer would like to remind residents that all dogs must be licensed by 7 months of age and have a current metal registration tag securely fastened to a collar or harness.

Licenses are good for one year and must be renewed by January 31 of each year. License renewal applications are not mailed to homes. For your convenience, we have made the application form available for download from our Dog Licenses page where you will also find fee information and rabies vaccination requirements.

A $3.00 increase in licensing fees was passed at the December 22, 2014 council meeting. The new rates will become effective February 1, 2015 so be sure to renew before the January 31 deadline.
