A. 
Rabies vaccination. The owner of a dog or cat shall have the dog or cat vaccinated against rabies by a veterinarian at no later than five months of age and revaccinated within one year after the initial vaccination. If the owner obtains the dog or cat or brings the dog or cat into the Village of Brandon after the dog or cat has reached five months of age, the owner shall have the dog or cat vaccinated against rabies within 30 days after the dog or cat is brought into the Village unless the dog or cat has been vaccinated as evidenced by a current certificate of rabies vaccination.

After issuing the certificate of rabies vaccination, the veterinarian shall deliver to the owner a rabies vaccination tag of durable material bearing the same serial number as the certificate, the year the vaccination was given and the name, address and telephone number of the veterinarian.
E. 
Tag to be attached. The owner shall attach the rabies vaccination tag or a substitute tag to a collar, and a collar with the tag attached shall be kept on the dog or cat at all times, but this requirement does not apply to a dog or cat during competition or training, to a dog while hunting, to a dog or cat securely confined indoors or to a dog or cat securely confined in a fenced area. The substitute tag shall be of a durable material and contain the same information as the rabies vaccination tag. The requirements of this subsection do not apply to a dog or cat which is not required to be vaccinated under Subsection A.

(2) 
The owner of any dog or cat more than five months of age on January 1 of any year, or five months of age within the license year, shall annually, or on or before the date the dog or cat becomes five months of age, pay a license tax and obtain a license.

The minimum license tax under this section shall be as set by the Village Board.[1]
[1]
Editor's Note: Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. II).
(4) 
Upon payment of the required license tax and upon presentation of evidence that the dog or cat is currently immunized against rabies, as required by § 187-2 of this chapter, the Village Treasurer shall complete and issue to the owner a license for such dog or cat containing all information required by state or local law. The Village Treasurer shall also deliver to the owner, at the time of issuance of the license, a tag of durable material bearing the same serial number as the license, the name of the county in which issued and the license year.
(5) 
The owner shall securely attach the tag to a collar, and the collar with the tag attached shall be kept on the dog or cat for which the license is issued at all times, except as provided in § 187-2E.
(6) 
The fact that a dog or cat is without a tag attached to the dog or cat by means of a collar shall be presumptive evidence that the dog or cat is unlicensed. Any law enforcement or humane officer shall seize, impound or restrain any dog or cat for which a dog or cat license is required which is found without such tag attached.
(7) 
Notwithstanding the foregoing, every dog specifically trained to lead blind or deaf persons is exempt from the dog license tax, and every person owning such a dog shall receive annually a free dog license from the Village Treasurer upon application therefor.
B. 
Kennel licenses.

Any person who keeps or operates a kennel may, instead of the license tax for each dog or cat required by this chapter, apply for a kennel license for the keeping or operating of the kennel. Such person shall pay for the license year a license tax as set by the Village Board. Upon payment of the required kennel license tax and, if required by the Village Board, upon presentation of evidence that all dogs or cats over five months of age are currently immunized against rabies, the Village Treasurer shall issue the kennel license and a number of tags equal to the number of dogs or cats authorized to be kept in the kennel. Kennels may only be located in residential areas following a public hearing and approval by the Village Board; the Board may attach conditions to such approval as a conditional use under Chapter 485, Zoning, of the Code of the Village of Brandon; kennels may be inspected at any time for compliance with this chapter.[2]

These tags may be transferred from one dog or cat to another within the kennel whenever any dog or cat is removed from the kennel. The rabies vaccination tag or substitute tag shall remain attached to the dog or cat for which it is issued at all times, but this requirement does not apply to a show dog or cat during competition, to a dog or cat securely confined indoors or to a dog or cat securely confined in a fenced area. No dog or cat bearing a kennel tag shall be permitted to stray or to be taken anywhere outside the limits of the kennel unless the dog or cat is in leash or temporarily for the purposes of hunting, breeding, trial, training or competition.[3]

Designated officials shall investigate any complaints regarding the failure to maintain proper standards or investigate any kennel premises upon their own initiative. Expressly incorporated by reference in this section as minimum standards for kennel keepers or operator are the relevant provisions of Chapter 951 of the Wisconsin Statutes.[4]

Editor's Note: Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. II).
(5) 
A condition of a kennel license shall be that the licensed premises may be entered and inspected at any reasonable hour by appropriate Village officials without any warrant, and the application for a license hereunder shall be deemed a consent to this provision. Any refusal to permit such inspection shall automatically operate as a revocation of any license issued hereunder and shall be deemed a violation of this section. Should any kennel be found to constitute a public nuisance, the license shall be revoked and the nuisance abated pursuant to Village ordinances.

§ 187-4 Late fees. [1]

The Village Treasurer shall assess and collect a late fee as set by the Village Board from every owner of a dog or cat five months of age or over if the owner failed to obtain a license prior to April 1 of each year, or within 30 days of acquiring ownership of a licensable dog or cat, or if the owner failed to obtain a license on or before the dog or cat reached licensable age.

The officer shall attempt to kill the animal in a humane manner and in a manner which avoids damage to the animal's head.
