Attention all Lenawee County dog owners! It's that time of year again to apply for your 2024 dog license. The State of Michigan mandates that owners of canines aged four months or older must apply for a license. Not only is it a legal requirement, but it's also a crucial tool in ensuring your pet's safety.
Here's what you need to know:
🏷️ Identification Tag:- A county license tag is essential for your dog's identification. In case your furry friend gets lost, this tag aids law enforcement in quickly reuniting you with your beloved pet.
📋 Application Requirements:- Rabies Certificate: A valid Rabies Certificate is mandatory and must be presented annually to obtain the license. A paper copy of this certificate is required. - Spay/Neuter Proof: Check your Rabies Certificate, as spay/neuter information might already be noted under the gender of your dog. - Vaccination Expiry: The Rabies vaccination should not expire less than two weeks from the license issue date.
🔍 Renewal Process:- Licenses can be renewed either by mail or in person. For mail renewals, include a copy of the Rabies Certificate, a check or money order payable to Lenawee County Treasurer, and a self-addressed stamped envelope.
🐕 Special Cases:- Service Dogs: Service dogs qualify for a $0.00 fee but require proof of their service status. - New Residents/Puppies: Licenses must be purchased within 30 days of relocating to Lenawee County or receiving the Rabies vaccine for a new puppy.
Lenawee County Animal Control has access to the County Treasurer's database of licensed dogs, allowing them to track down owners at any time. Ensure your contact information is up-to-date to facilitate easy identification and contact if your dog is found.
Don't delay! Apply for your 2024 Lenawee County Dog License promptly to comply with state regulations and safeguard your pet. Remember, a licensed dog is a safe and identifiable dog.
