Dog Licenses

Lapeer County now issues dog licenses year-round. All dogs age 4 months or older must be licensed. State law was changed so that a dog license cannot expire after the animal's rabies vaccination expires. The goal of the County Treasurer's office and Animal Control is for a dog's license and rabies vaccination to expire in the same month. Presently, Lapeer County issues one year licenses. In the future, three year licenses may be offered.

Dog owners holding current licenses will receive renewal notices in the mail. Licenses may be renewed in person or by mail from Animal Control. For more information, please call 667-0236. Fees for licenses are:

Puppy (12 months or younger)
• Spay/Neutered
• Male/Female
• Delinquent Fees

Lapeer County recently updated its Animal Control Ordinance, effective September 1, 2003. Copies of the Ordinance are available from Animal Control, the County Clerk or the County Treasurer or may be downloaded from the link below.
