Tags can be purchased at the City of Ellis Clerks Office.  All dogs must be registered once a year.  When registering a new dog tag will be issued for the dog to wear on its collar.  If dogs are not registered, owners will be ticketed for no city tag.  It is important the dog wears their tag so if picked up by an Ellis Officer they can return the dog to their home.
Neutered/spay Dogs: $5 a year
Non-Neutered/spay Dogs: $10 a year


The dog pound is located east of the campgrounds.  All dogs that are picked up by the Ellis Police Department who do not have tags are taken to the pound.  Dogs can stay in the pound up to five days.  They are then taken to the Humane Society to be destroyed.  To retrieve your dog from the pound contact the Ellis Police Department.  To get your dog out of the pound you must show the dog's current rabies vaccination and it must have an Ellis City tag.


$12 a day
