Dog Licenses

Purchasing a License

Between December 1st and March 1st, Texas Township sells dog tags on behalf of Kalamazoo County.

Michigan State Law requires all dogs to be rabies vaccinated and licensed at 4 months of age. Dogs must be licensed within 30 days of obtaining ownership OR within 30 days of the dog turning 4 months of age. Licenses must be renewed yearly between December 1st and March 1st, regardless of when the previous year’s license was purchased.

After March 1st, licenses may be purchased at Animal Services (2500 Lake Street, Kalamazoo, MI 49048).
