Dog License Information E-mail

State law requires that all dogs four (4) months of age or older have a current rabies vaccination and dog license. A dog license needs to be purchased within the month the dog receives its rabies shot. Manistee County dog licenses are no longer calendar-year licenses; they will be based on your dog's rabies shot date.

What is required to purchase a dog license?

1.  A valid rabies vaccination certificate signed by an accredited veterinarian

2.  Certificate of spay or neutering, if applicable

3.  Appropriate fee


1-year license for spayed/neutered; $10.00, male/female; $20.00

3-year license (if qualifies) for spayed/neutered; $30.00, male/female; $60.00

Delinquent fees apply after the last day of the month in which your dog receives its rabies vaccination.

Delinquent Fees:

1-year license for all dogs; $40.00

3-year license for spayed/neutered; $60.00, male/female; $80.00

New dog/puppy/resident:

If you have a new dog or puppy, or are a new resident to Manistee County, the fees will be at the reduced rate as long as you acquire the license within 30 days.

Lost License:

If your dogs license is lost, you may bring in your dog license receipt to the Manistee County Treasurer's Office and we will issue your dog a new license at no charge. This replacement license will only be valid as long as the original license was valid.
