It is time to license your dog

It is time to license your dog

CASCADE, MI - Cascade Township officials say it is time to license dogs.  Michigan law requires that all dogs over the age of four months must be licensed.  Proof of rabies vaccination and neutering from your veterinarian are required to obtain a license. 

The cost of a dog license doubles after March 1, 2011.  Neutered dog licenses are $11.00 and unaltered is $24.00.  Senior citizens get a discount, so licenses cost $6.00 for neutered and $12.00 for unaltered dogs.

Licenses may only be purchased at the Kent County Animal Shelter at 740 Fuller Avenue NE in Gand Rapids in person or by mail.  For more information call 616-632-7300.
