The City of Graettinger would like to remind everyone that all dogs and cats should be registered with city. The city will provide you with a tag you can attach to your furbaby's collar. This service allows us to identify your pet and give you a call if found. All Dogs and cats should be registered over 5 months old. Please refer to Ordinance Chapter 55 - available for review at City Hall for all questions. If a dog or cat strays, it may be impounded and the owner or keeper may be cited for having an animal at large. The citation is a summons to court with the punishment and/or fine determined by the judge. A pet that is impounded is not being punished—it’s being protected. We appreciate all your help and remind you to keep your animals hydrated in this extreme ly hot weather.

National Pickleball Day is on August 8! Do you know that it has been 57 years since Pickleball was invented? The game combines traditional lawn tennis, ping-pong, a.k.a. table tennis, and badminton. The game is played with ping-pong rackets on a badminton court with a tennis net. Similar to tennis, but is less challenging, it’s suitable for people of all ages. National Pickleball Day was created by pickleball instructor Deirdre Morris in 2021 to encourage people to learn to play pickleball. Come join us Aug 31 at 1pm as AARP presents a ceremonial check to The City of Graettinger to complete our Pickleball Courts!!! we are all looking forward to playing some pickleball!!!!
