Dog Licensing

All dogs over 6 months old must be licensed within Ramsey. Licenses are available at the Ramsey Police Department during business hours.

License fees are $20 for all dogs, unless they are spayed or neutered, which drops the fee to $10. The City allows three dogs per household, and all dogs must be leashed when off the owner's premises. Additionally, all dog excrement must be removed immediately and disposed of in the proper receptacle.
