Dog License Information

[Online Dog License Site]  [Dog License By Mail Form (PDF)]

An Eaton County dog license is required for all dogs four months or older.  Licensing provides good pet identification, ensures dogs are vaccinated for rabies, and proves you are its owner.

1 and 3-year Licensing

The three-year license is part of an overall effort in the county treasurer’s office to simplify dog licensing and alleviate waiting lines. One-year licenses will still be available at the option of the pet owner.

Dog licensing is based on the pet’s rabies vaccination date.    A license will become delinquent after the last day in the month in which the rabies vaccination anniversary expires.  Delinquent licenses will carry a $20 late fee in addition to the base fee. 

 A renewal notice will be mailed to licensed pet owners thirty days prior to the 2020 renewal date.

One-year License                  Three-Year License                         
 $20                                         $55 (Non Spayed/Neutered)                  
 $15                                         $40 (Spayed/Neutered)

The penalty for a delinquent license will be $20 in addition to the base license fee.
