Registration and Licensing of Pets

Dogs, cats and other animals provide great companionship, but owning a pet involves a lot of responsibility.

The city wants residents to enjoy their animals while maintaining peace and quiet in our neighborhoods, protecting property and providing a safe environment for residents and pets.

The City of Highland is reminding every owner of a dog over six months of age to annually register their pet with the city clerk.

The municipal code states registration fees shall be paid annually on or before the last day of February.  The cost for a tag is $3.00 for all males and neutered females and $6.00 non-neutered females. A $5.00 penalty fee for late registration will be accessed if not renewed by March 1st.

Ordinance #335 was passed by the City Council on May 13, 1987 prohibiting the keeping or harboring of the "pit bull" breed or any other breed of vicious dogs.  Pit bulls are totally illegal within the city limits.

Upon registration, the owner shall present a current, completed certificate of immunization against rabies.  If you registered your pet last year at City Hall, the city clerk may have the expiration date for the rabies immunization.

The City also has a leash law for dogs.  It is the responsibility of the owner to have his dog on a leash or tied up on his own property and can not be running at large.  Any dogs caught running at large can be taken to a nearby animal shelter and the owner will be responsible for all boarding costs and will be charged a $25 fee at City Hall before the animal will be released.  Should your dog be running at large a ticket may be issued by the Police Department.
