Dog Licenses
Wisconsin Statutes (Sections 95.21(2), 174.05, and 174.07(1)(b)) require all dogs that are five months of age or older to be licensed. The owner of the dog must obtain a license annually prior to April 1st OR on or before the date the dog becomes five months of age.

Evidence that the dog is currently immunized against rabies must be presented before a license can be issued.

Failure to obtain a license prior to the April 1st deadline may result in a late fee.

A dog license may NOT be transferred from one dog to another.

**Dog licenses are obtained from your local municipality (City, Village or Town)**
