Dogs and Cats
"Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet." - Colette

 

The Village of Mokena welcomes your furry friends! We only ask that you adhere to a few common courtesies for the benefit of the entire community.

  • A certification of rabies inoculation is required for all dogs and cats residing within Frankfort Township (most of Mokena is within Frankfort Township).  Animal tags are available at the Mokena Village Hall at a cost of $5 each. Mokena residents residing in New Lenox Township are not required to register their pets with either Township.

  • Village of Mokena and Frankfort Township Ordinances require all animals to be licensed.  It is unlawful to permit any dog or cat to run loose in the Village at any time.  Dogs and cats that are on any street, alley, sidewalk or other public place without being secured on a leash are deemed to be running loose. 

  • Village Ordinance requires pet owners to remove their pet’s excrement from any public or private property within the Village limits.  The Ordinance also prohibits the owner of an animal from allowing excrement to accumulate on their own property to the extent that it would create a public nuisance.

Questions regarding these requirements may be directed to the Mokena Police Department at (708) 479-3912.
