Licenses are due after January 1st of the current year. Fees are $15.00 per male or female dog and $10.00 per each neutered male or spayed female dog. Although penalties are assessed after April 1st (add $25.00 per dog to the fee) if your dog is picked up after January 1st without a current Village of Vernon dog license, your dog will not be released without a current license plus additional fees and penalties. All dogs five (5) months or older must be licensed before April 1st to avoid a $25 penalty. To apply, please submit a 2021 Dog License Application and applicable fee. Proof of rabies vaccination is also required at the time of registration. Please make a separate check payable to Village of Vernon.
