Dog, cat licenses

February 22, 2019

Editor, Daily Times:

On the last day of last year, all current dog and cat licenses expired. Renewals are issued at the city clerk’s office, 106 Jones St., Watertown. For questions, call 262-4018.

New owners must obtain a license within 30 days of obtaining a dog or cat that is over 5 months of age, or within 30 days of moving into the city with a dog or cat that is over 5 months of age. Also, a pet that is 5 months of age has to obtain a rabies vaccination.

The license costs only $5 if the pet is spayed or neutered, $10 if not. The penalty for not having a current license is $187, a significantly bigger bite.
