ANIMALS AT LARGE: Ordinance number 7.06 prohibits animals from running at large within the Village. Each violation of this ordinance is subject to a fine.

The cost is $8.00 per animal if spayed or neutered and $10 if not. A $5.00 late fee per animal is added beginning April 1, 2017. If you are requesting a dog license either by mail or by leaving your information in the drop box, please complete this form and submit it with a copy of the proof of rabies from your veterinarian’s office, payment made payable to the Village of Wyocena, and a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
