Dog & Cat Licensing Information


All dogs five (5) months of age or older require a dog license. Several municipalities in Washington County also require cats to be licensed. Dog Licenses are obtained from your local municipal treasurer. A certificate of rabies vaccination must be presented to the collecting official before a dog license may be issued. Rabies vaccinations can be obtained through your local veterinarian. Dog owners should notify their municipality if their dog is given away or has died so that you will not be considered delinquent. Wisconsin State Statutes require that all dogs be licensed and vaccinated against rabies.
