Dog License Requirements

Vaccination of all dogs against rabies by a veterinarian is required according to Wisconsin Statute Section 95.21(2) within 30 days after a dog reaches 4 months of age and re-vaccinated before the certificate expires or within three years of the previous vaccination. Evidence that the dog is currently immunized against rabies must be presented before a license can be issued.  To qualify for the minimum license fee for neutered males or spayed females, presentation of evidence attesting to same must be presented when applying for the license

A minimum late fee of $5.00 shall be assessed the owner of each dog 5 months of age or over who fails to obtain a dog license by April 1st each year, or within 30 days of acquiring ownership on or before the dog reached licensable age.  The minimum late fee may be raised by municipal action.

Any owner who fails to have a dog vaccinated against rabies as required by statute may be required to forfeit not less than $50, nor more than $100.

Minimum License Fees

These minimum fees may be increased by municipal action.

Multiple Dog Licenses

$35 for up to 12 dogs with a $3 charge for each additional dog. The multiple dog license is an option of the owner with a number of dogs. It is not the commercial kennel license.

Licenses must be obtained from your local municipal treasurer with a proof of vaccination required.
