It will soon cost a little more to own a cat or a dog in Keokuk as the city council has agreed to increase the cost of the annual license.
Owners currently pay $5/animal each year.
The cost of the license will increase to $10 on July 1 if the animal is spayed or neutered. A three-year license would also be available for $25.
Mayor Tom Marion says the license would increase to $25 for one year and $65 for three years if the animal is unaltered.
