Washington City Animal Control restricts animal nuisances that impact community lives and safety. If your animal is found wandering the impound fee is $25 for the first offense and $10 per day of impound. Please contact us right away if your animal is missing!
All dogs in the city must be licensed. Licenses are valid from January 1st through December 31st, expiring on December 31st regardless of the time of year purchased. A $10.00 late fee per animal will be charged after February 28. Rabies shots are required every 3 years to license the animal. There is a discount for licensing pets that are spayed or neutered. Please bring in proof of rabies vaccination and spay/neuter certification. Part-time residents who are in the city longer than 30 days are required to license their dogs.
