Guidelines

In accordance with Chapter 174.05 and 174.07 of the Wisconsin statutes, rabies vaccinations are required for all dogs aged 4 months or older, and licenses are required for all dogs 5 months or older.  The Town of Dayton is the government body that is responsible for issuing dog licenses and checking on rabies vaccination compliance.

Dog Licensing Procedures

You must obtain a dog license annually through the Town of Dayton treasurer.  You can do this in-person at the Town Hall or through the mail by submitting the required form.  Proof of rabies vaccination will be required for first-time applications, and also when a rabies vaccination update was required after the dog license was issued the previous year.  Licenses for the entire year are issued from January 1 through March 31 of each year.

Dog Licensing Fees

The fee for a dog license is $10 with a $5 discount if the dog has been spayed or neutered.

Penalties

A late fee of $5 will be assessed an owner who fails to obtain a dog license before April 1.  An owner who fails to have a dog vaccinated against rabies may be required to forfeit not less than $50 nor more than $100.
