Dog licensing

Licensing your dog is a part of our state law and is required when your dog reaches three months of age. Licensing also provides a means of reuniting lost pets with their owners. I hope you find this information helpful and worthwhile. Should you have any questions about dog licensing, please do not hesitate to contact us.

When? All dogs over 3 months of age must be licensed each year before the 31st of January. When you obtain an older dog you have 30 days to purchase a tag without paying a penalty. However, a tag should be purchased immediately in order to avoid possible Municipal Court non-licensure fines.

Cost? A dog license costs $20.00 and a kennel license costs $100.00 You must be engaged in the business of breeding dogs for hunting or for sale in order to qualify for a kennel license.

Where? Monday through Friday at the County Auditor's Office in the Courthouse, or by mail using the dog application. Please go to Forms / Publications to apply for a dog tag (under misc licenses).

Additional sales locations: dog tags are only sold between December 1st and January 31st. These locations will not sell dog tags thereafter.
