Dog licenses will be renewable upon expiration of the rabies vaccination.  Dog owners will be required to obtain either a one-year or three-year license based on the dog’s rabies vaccination date.  A late fee will be imposed if the dog owner does not obtain a dog license by the last day of the month in which the dog’s current rabies vaccination expires pursuant to MCL 287.266(3) (f).

Please make sure you have the dog’s rabies certificate signed by an accredited veterinarian available when purchasing your dog license.  Dog licenses will not be issued without a current rabies certificate. You may purchase your dog license at the Oceana County Treasurer’s Office in person or by mail or at the Oceana County Animal Control Office. You may pay online by credit card below:
