    Pet Owner

    The city requires that all dogs be licensed and leashed and that barking be controlled. Dog licenses may be purchased at the Police Department. The Police Department picks up all strays which are then impounded. See the fee schedule below for costs when getting your dog back. If Hutchinson Police Department picks up your dog running loose, there is also an additional fee per day charge to board loose dogs. (Dogs are boarded at Crow River Veterinary Clinic under contract with the City.) Similarly, a cat ordinance controls feline pets.
