The City of Glasgow has a Leash Law that requires all dogs to be kept on a leash and under the owners’ direct control. All dogs within the city limits over the age of two months must have a City dog or puppy tag. Tags expire each year on April 30th. In order to register a puppy, free Puppy Tags are offered to owners of dogs under the age of six (6) months and cannot receive rabies vaccinations. Once a puppy reaches the age of 6 months, it must have a rabies vaccination, a dog tag, and be registered with the City. A list of registered dogs is kept at City Hall, so if your animal is lost, the number on the tag will be used to help return the animal to its owner. A tag is required on all dogs, both in the home or outdoors in a pen, etc. Dog tags may be purchased for $1.50 each for males and spayed females and $3.25 for non-spayed females. You must present proof of rabies vaccinations at the time of purchase. Whenever possible, a dog vaccination clinic is held in April at Stump Island Park. Check the local newspaper in March for a date and time.
