Dogs and outdoor cats must be licensed

All dogs and outdoor cats in Oak Park are required to display a current animal license. Licenses must be renewed each year by May 1.

Owners of unlicensed dogs and outdoor cats may be fined.

Oak Park pet owners who receive an animal license renewal application in the mail are encouraged to renew online. The online system also allows pet owners to delete pets they no longer own and add new ones. Payment is made with a credit card, a receipt sent via e-mail and the actual tag delivered in the U.S. Mail.

Pet owners still will have the option of mailing in their payment or coming to Village Hall, 123 Madison St.

Residents new to the Village must come to Village Hall to provide proof of current rabies inoculation and spaying/neutering. The license fee is $10 for a neutered/spayed dog and all cats, and $25 for any non-spayed/non-neutered dog.
