A tag will be issued and must be affixed to a collar worn by the animal at all times when the animal is not on the owner’s premises. Failure to comply with any of these bylaws could result in the seizure of the cat, and/or the issuance of a fine.

December & January – $20.00 for a spayed/neutered dog; $40.00 for a non-spayed/non-neutered dog
February – November – $30.00 for a spayed/neutered dog; $50.00 for a non-spayed, non-neutered dog
