Is your dog/cat licenced?

Cats and dogs within the Town of Arcola are required to be licensed. The cost is $25.00 per pet.  This is a one time fee for a lifetime license.  A maximum of two (2) adult cats or dogs are allowed per household.

Please fill out the forms below and come into the Town Office with an idea of the date of vaccines, specifically rabies and a picture of your pet. Once this information has been provided and you have paid the $25 per pet, you will be provided a tag to be worn by your dog or cat at all times.

Pitbulls and Rottweilers or any mix of these breeds are prohibited in town.

If your animal is lost it is easier to find out who the owner is if you have your pet licensed. If a dog or cat is caught running at large with no tag it can be put in the local pound. Pound costs are $50 per day. If the animal is not claimed and the bill is left unpaid for more than three (3) days, the town administrator can dispose of the animal.
