ORDINANCE VIOLATION(S) - TICKETS
Please contact the Treasurer’s Office within thirty (30) days of the date of this letter. Due to Warren County Ordinance# 06-10-11 Section 6 – Enforcement (b) Failure to purchase a rabies inoculation tag within 30 days of vaccination and within 30 days of the anniversary date each year thereafter shall result in a citation being issued by the Animal Control Warden. If you receive a Warren County ordinance violation, please be advised that you will not be able to pay your citation in our office until we have proof of vaccination and you are current on your dog tags. Please do not rely on your vet’s office to give us proof of vaccination.
STEPS OF A DOG VIOLATION TICKET:
- Warren Co. Animal Control will issue a ticket giving a court date. If you do not take care of the ticket with the Warren Co. Treasurer’s office (have to have proof of current rabies vaccination in order to pay ticket) before the court date, you have to SHOW UP IN COURT.
- If you miss that court date, the Warren Co. Circuit Clerk will issue a Summons (fees will be associated with summons) to the Sheriff and a Sheriff’s Deputy will serve you. You will still need to pay the ticket with the Treasurer (as long as you have current rabies vaccination), but you also MUST APPEAR on the court date of the Summons.
- If you FAIL TO APPEAR in court once SUMMONED, that will lead the Court finding you in DEFAULT (guilty) and will result in a fine and court costs that will need to be paid in the Warren Co. Circuit Clerk’s office (3rd floor).
Dogs are to be vaccinated at 16 weeks (4 months) of age for rabies and each year after.
The fee for registration is $10.00 for a 1-year rabies tag. If the dog isn’t spayed or neutered, it will an additional $45.00 (non-alter fee) (this does not include the $10.00 tag fee).
If you are in your first year/first time registering the $45.00 non-alter fee is waived.
If you get a three-year rabies vaccination, we do offer a three-year tag. If your dog is fixed/altered the fee is $30.00 ($10.00 for each year). If your dog is not fixed/altered and you would like a 3-year rabies tag the price is $165.00. These prices do not include late fees or tickets.
Per Ordinance 06-10-11 Animal Control Section 4 – Altered (fixed) Dogs, at the time of the second registration, any unaltered dog, whether male or female and with or without permanent identification, shall be assess a $45.00 fee. Any person purchasing a subsequent alteration fee after the anniversary date shall pay a late fee. This fee shall be assessed yearly and will be paid in addition to other applicable fees. Any altered or confined dogs shall be exempt from this fee. If surgery would pose a serious health risk to a dog due to pre-existing medical condition, a medical exemption may be granted and obtained from a veterinarian. Every owner must present or mail two copies of the Warren County Rabies Certificate to the Warren County Treasurer’s office with a veterinarian’s signature verifying permanent alteration at the time of registration.
Once you get your dog vaccinated, (1 year or 3 year vaccine) it is your responsibility to come and register your dog (1 year tag or 3 year tag).
You cannot get a rabies vaccine from Farm King. A licensed vet can only give rabies vaccine.
Rabies tags help get dogs home faster if their tags are attached to collars.
Warren County Animal Control and the Warren County Treasurer’s Office has access to the dog tag list.
Microchipping dogs help. Microchipped dogs do not tell you your dog is missing but can tell you if they are found.
Animal Control can run a scanner over the dog to find the microchip number and look it up and find your information as long as it’s updated.
There are different GPS collars or Apple airtags that you can you put on your dog’s collars if you would like to have an idea where they are at all times.
