Dog Licenses

WI State Statute 174.05 requires dog(s) more than 5 months old be licensed each year.  A license year is from January 1st to December 31st.

Reminders to license your dog(s) will be put on the yearly property tax informational sheet that is included with your property tax bill, published in the Daily Jefferson Union, posted on the town's website and at our posting sites (Town Hall and Lake Ripley Inn).

Fees for licensing are:

Spayed/Neutered                           $5.00
Non Spayed/Neutered                 $10.00 

All renewal licenses issued started April 1st will incur a $5.00 late fee.

All dog licenses require current proof of rabies vaccination certificate from your vet.  We don't need a copy of the certificate for in person licenses but please bring it with you as we need the information off it.   If paying by mail or using the drop box, include a copy of the rabies certificate, required payment and a self-addressed stamped envelope so we can send your license and paperwork back to you!.

Please be advised that in addition to assessment of a late fee, the matter of an unlicensed dog(s) will be forwarded to the Oakland Police Department if not licensed by the 3rd Wednesday of May.  This will result in a citation.

Please help keep the Town of Oakland a safe place for our residents (both two and four legged) and to be able to return your pet should it become lost.  We are usually the first place someone will call to find an owner of a lost dog!
