Pet Licenses Due July 15th

The Coulee Region Humane Society Animal Control is reminding pet owners to license their animals. 

State and local law require every dog or cat to be licensed by January 30th of each year. However, a grace period has been given for residents until July 15th.

Failure to license your pet could result in a fine of $275. 

Animal Control supervisor Kathy KasaKaitas says licensing animals is important for not only pet safety but also for your own health. "We have had positive rabies in bats in the area and other areas in Wisconsin have had positive rabies in fox, skunk, coyote and other animals like that, and if your animal is not vaccinated and has come in contact with these animals you are bringing them into your home and you could risk your health or your pet’s health other pets health by that type of transmission of rabies."

You can license your pet at your city’s treasurer’s office or at the Coulee Region Humane Society.
