MOUNT VERNON — Like all business owners, dog breeders are subject to laws and regulations. Locally, that begins with a dog kennel license issued by the Knox County Auditor. Any person or entity breeding dogs for sale or hunting is required to obtain the $80 annual license. Kennels are then subject to routine inspection by the county dog warden, but in practice most inspections take place when allegations of animal cruelty or neglect are received.
