Animal Control

The Town of River Bend requires that all dogs and cats “kept, harbored, maintained, or cared for” in Town to be licensed. In order to purchase a license, the person registering the animal must provide proof that the dog or cat has a current rabies vaccination. Licenses are available for purchase at the Town Hall. The current license fee is $10.00.

Our Public Works staff members serve as our animal control officers and pick up stray dogs and cats and transport them to the Animal Shelter. If your dog or cat wanders away, you are encouraged to notify the Police Department.
