City of Strafford Municipal Ordinance 205.050 requires anyone keeping a dog within the City Limits, over the age of six months, to secure and display on a collar worn on the dog's neck, an annual license issued by the City of Strafford.
At the time of licensing, we require a rabies certificate from a veterinarian. This can be attached, faxed to 417-736-2390, emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to City of Strafford, PO Box 66, Strafford, MO 65757. Dog licenses are $5.00 for spayed or neutered dogs and $10.00 for non-spayed or un-neutered dogs. Licenses are valid from Jan 1st thru Dec 31st. After we receive the rabies certificate and payment, we will issue a Dog License. Dogs must be in reasonable control of the owner at all times. A citation can be issued if your dog is not controlled by a leash outside the owner's property. Dogs that are found without a license tag on their collar will be held at the City's kennel facility. Payment can be made in person or over the phone by calling 417-736-2154. If you would like to fill out and submit an application online, please click here.
