To acquire a dog license, proof of the dog’s rabies vaccination must be provided along with evidence of spaying or neutering if applicable.
All dogs 4 months and older MUST be licensed with the Macomb County Animal Control, It's the law, not an option. Failure to do so may result in up to a $500 fine.
Unaltered: $75.00 Puppies are expected to be registered after their rabies shot at around four months old.
Late Fee: $20.00 (regardless of year
**Be Advised** Our licensing period is no longer centered around the March 1st deadline. That is gone entirely now. Licensing will now expire on the same Month & Day as the Rabies Expiration.
Example: If a new 3 year rabies shot was given today (7/23/19) then the resident has the option of a 1, 2 or 3 year license. These hypothetical tags would expire either 7/23/20 (1 year), 7/23/21 (2 year) OR 7/23/22 (3 year). Tags no longer expire on 12/31/YEAR
