Dog Licenses Available

Beginning Monday, December 2 and running through Friday, January 31, you can stop by the library to get your dog’s license.

The cost of the annual license is $16 and the library will accept cash and checks. Please bring your renewal form with you. All dogs over the age of three months and that you’ve owned for more than 30 days are required to have a license.

If your dog becomes lost, their license can make all the difference in returning them to you. With a license on their collar, your dog can be held for up to 14 days while the dog warden tries to contact you. According to state law, a dog without a license can only be held for three days.

The Wayne County Auditor also sells a three-year tag for $48 and a lifetime tag for $160. Tags can also be purchased online at
