The Devils Lake Police Department would like to remind dog owners that your pet is required by ordinance to be vaccinated and licensed with the police department if it is more than six months old.
The dog license expiration coincides with the expiration of the rabies vaccinations.
Dogs are required to have their license and rabies tag on their collars.
When walking their dogs, owners are required to keep the dogs on a leash and have supplies available to pick up solid wastes after their dogs.
Leashes are required no matter how well trained a dog may be. It only takes a split second of loss of control for a tragic accident to occur.
Police Chief Keith Schroeder says, “Please be a responsible pet owner, vaccinate, license, leash, and clean - your pet and your neighbors will appreciate it.”
