Registration Fees


Residents are reminded to register your dogs. Registration is $5 for dogs that are spayed or neutered, or $10 if they are not spayed or neutered. A current immunization certificate is required at registration. Owners of dogs running at large without a registration will receive a $50 to $300 fine.

City Code, Article 2-220, restricts the number of dogs to a maximum of three (3) per household.

Please contact City Hall at 316-794-2441 to register your dog.

Lost or Loose Pets


Owners of registered dogs running at large are subject to a $25 impound fee. All animals picked up will be boarded at the City of Goddard animal facility. Impounded animals are detained for a maximum of 72 hours and then turned over to an agency for adoption.

If you’ve lost your pet contact Community Development Specialist Monte Barnickle at 316-794-2441.
