Pet Licensing

The Village of Ridgeway would like to remind Ridgeway pet owners that a village license is required for all dogs within the village limits.

All dogs, 5 months and older, are required to be licensed per Ord. 8.05. A valid rabies vaccination certificate is required for licensing. A license can be obtained from the Clerk-Treasurer’s Office located in the Village of Ridgeway Fire Station, 113 Dougherty Ct.  Licenses are $8 for dogs that are spayed or neutered (proof required) and $18 for dogs that have not been spayed or neutered. 

License renewals may be purchased through March 31 of each year; after March 31, a $10 late fee will be charged. The fine for keeping an unlicensed dog in the village limits is $25.00 to $200.00, and any additional court costs per Municipal Code 8.05(m).

The Village of Ridgeway and the Iowa County Humane Society urge Ridgeway dog and cat owners to be responsible by complying with the laws on rabies vaccinations, licensing, leashes, and litter clean up. 

For questions about animal licenses, please call the village office at 924-5881.
