Animal Control

If you have a stray dog please call City Hall at 515-462-1422 between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm. After 5:00 pm, call the Winterset Police Department at 515-462-1423.

The City of Winterset requires that dogs be licensed. You must provide a copy of your dog’s rabies vaccination certificate to get a dog license. The fee is $15 per dog, but is reduced to $10 if the dog has been spayed or neutered (certification required). The annual renewal of your dog license is in January each year, and a $20 late fee is assessed after January 31st.

Dog License Application

Winterset dogs enjoy the annual “Doggie Dip” event at the Aquatic Center, hosted by the Park & Recreation Department at the end of the summer season.
