Pet Licensing

All dogs and cats, 6 months or older, are required by the State of Illinois to have a rabies tag. The rabies certificate must be presented to Village Hall when applying for a dog or cat tag from the Village. The expiration date for every license is July 1st of each year. The Village charges $4 for each animal tag. Senior citizens may purchase 1 tag per household at the reduced rate of $2.

Romeoville Adopt-a-pet Program

Animals being housed by the Village of Romeoville Animal Control Department are available for adoption 7 days after the animal’s arrival at the Animal Control Kennel. A hold may be placed on an animal until it is available for adoption. This will ensure that the animal will be reserved for the person placing the hold on it in the event that the animal’s owner does not reclaim it. All holds expire 24 hours after the animal becomes available for adoption.

Please Note: The Village of Romeoville does not know the veterinary care history of any of the animals up for adoption. There is no adoption fee. Adopted animals must be spayed or neutered. Any person interested in adopting a pet should call the Kennel at 815-886-1018. If no answer, or after hours, please call 815-886-7219.
