The North Judson Police Department is cracking down on pet owners who haven’t purchased the required tags for their cats and dogs from the town. Town Marshal Doug Vessely says the grace period for cat and dog owners to buy this year’s tags has ended.
Pet owners who haven’t yet purchased their tags are being told to do so as soon as possible, or they may be fined up to $50 per animal. The tags may be obtained at the Town Clerk’s Office at 310 Lane Street. The fee is $20 for dogs and cats that are spayed or neutered and $35 for those that aren’t.
Vessely reminds pet owners that animals must remain on the owner’s property or on a leash, as well as to clean up after their pets.
