This license must be renewed annually. License must be obtained and/or renewed by March 31 of the license year. An additional $15 late fee will be assessed for each license purchased after March 31, of the current license year.

Wisconsin State Statutes mandate that the owner of a dog more than five months of age on January 1, or five months of age within this year, shall obtain a license prior to April 1 or on or before the date the dog becomes five months of age. A late fee of $5 per dog licensed after March 31st will be applied. This fee is in addition to the regular license amount listed above.
If you no longer have a dog that was licensed in the town last year, please call the Town Treasurer at 608-269-6270 so that we can remove the dog from our records.
