B. Registration Requirement And Penalty For Failure To Register: If animal control determines that a dog meets the definition of "potentially dangerous" pursuant to subsection A of this section, the dog cannot be owned, sheltered, housed, harbored, kept, or maintained within the city limits of Waterloo unless the owner or possessor completes a registration with animal control and receives a registration certificate authorizing ownership or possession of the dog. Animal control shall notify the owner or possessor in writing that the dog is potentially dangerous, which notice shall be delivered personally or by certified mail. Delivery shall be deemed to occur at the time of personal delivery or three (3) business days after the date of mailing. Within seven (7) days following the date that animal control delivers notice to the owner or possessor that the dog is potentially dangerous, the owner or possessor of the dog must obtain the registration certificate or file an appeal of such determination pursuant to subsection N of this section. Any person found to own, shelter, house, harbor, keep, or maintain a dog which qualifies as a potentially dangerous dog under this section who has failed to register said dog or failed to file an appeal within the required seven (7) day period will be subject to an administrative penalty in the amount of fifty dollars ($50.00) and/or a municipal infraction violation. In addition, the registration fee will be increased to one hundred dollars ($100.00) and animal control will impound the animal. The owner or possessor may register the dog within seven (7) days following impoundment and obtain release of the dog if the required registration fee, administrative penalty, and all costs associated with boarding are paid. If the owner or possessor does not complete the registration process or file an appeal within seven (7) days after impoundment, the dog shall be destroyed in a humane manner and all costs associated with boarding and destruction of the dog shall be assessed against the owner or possessor.
