The village of Oak Park has opted to postpone the May 1 deadline to renew pet licenses, due to the impact COVID-19 has had on the daily operations within village government. Village government has yet to announce the new deadline.

According to the village's news release, "Owners whose pets were already licensed and who had emails on file with the village will be notified when a new deadline is set.

The village will also promote the new date via its Facebook page and Twitter account, as well as via "enews."

Rather than coming to village hall or sending in renewals through the postal service, pet owners are encouraged to renew licenses online, via this link: https://webservice.oak-park.us/AnimalLicense/.

New or first-time pet owners have the ability to and should also register their pets online.

The village has an annual licensing fee of $25 or $10 for animals that have undergone spaying or neutering.
