FDL City Council Considers Exemption To Dog Licensing Requirement


The Fond du Lac City Council will be asked to amend a city ordinance tonight that would allow an exemption for a requirement to get a dog license in the City. City Attorney Deb Hoffmann tells us dog owners are required to have their dogs vaccinated for rabies before they can get them licensed, but a state statute allows an exemption if the shot could harm or kill a dog that already has a medical condition. She says, “If he provides a written exemption from his veterinarian and the vet says basically if you give this vaccination it could you know kill the dog or make the dog ill then you can get an exemption.” The exemption does not apply to dogs that have a history of being aggressive or of biting people. Hoffmann also says the exemption is only good for one year. She says, “It is only good for a year so if the dog’s condition improves then the next year when they renew their dog license they will need to get the vaccination.” The Council will also be considering approving construction for seven different street projects. The Council meets at 6 p.m. at the City-County Government Center.
