In order to obtain a license, you must have a current, original Certification of Vaccination for rabies signed by an accredited veterinarian.

Dog Licenses can be renewed each year from January 1 until May 31.

Beginning June 1, people who have not purchased a current year dog license are considered delinquent. 

Fees for Dog Licenses are set by the Oakland County Board of Commissioners. Current fees can be found at https://www.oakgov.com/petadoption/animalcontrol/Pages/fees.aspx.

Pets need to be licensed because:

  • It’s been the law since 1919
  • Licensed pets have a better chance of being found
  • It proves ownership
  • Fees support Oakland County Pet Adoption Center
