Licenses - Information, How & Where to Apply

Licenses and Permits


Forms



2017 Dog Licenses are available now!

Dog Licensing


State and municipal law (City of Middleton Code - Chapter 7) requires that all dogs five months and older be licensed with the city each calendar year. If you are licensing your dog for the first time or you have recently vaccinated your dog, a rabies certificate must be presented at the time of licensing. The city is proud to offer low cost fees for licensing as listed below.

Licensing your dog is a requirement of the city. If your pet were to stray, the tag is a valuable resource to help bring them back home quickly.

Dog Licensing is conducted at City Hall in person or by mail at:
