Additional Information

All dogs are required to have current City Dog Tags by an ordinance of the City of Centerton.  To obtain your City Dog Tag, present your receipt verifying a current rabies shot to the Centerton City Hall (200 Municipal Dr.).  Prices are $5.00 if spayed / neutered and $10 if not.  You will benefit by having identification for your pet.  If your dog is found, you can easily be contacted from the record of your City Dog Tag.  If your dog is picked up by Centerton Animal Control you could be subject to a $100 fine per charge, for not having a city dog tag, dog-at-large and other possible impound fees.  You are responsible for having your dog tagged, leashed and vaccinated.

Wild Animals

Animal problems concerning removal of wildlife (Raccoons, Opossums, Squirrels, and the like) requires a licensed human trapper to be called. The Animal Control Office can provide a list of humane trappers in the area that can be called.
