Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our town office will be closed until further notice.

To obtain your 2020 dog license, please MAIL IN your rabies certificate showing name and serial number of vaccine, date of vaccination, and expiration date. Include your resident address, as well as mailing address (if different) and best contact phone number. If your dog is chipped, please provide that number also. The cost is $5 if neutered/spayed or $10 if not.

The deadline for getting your dog licensed is still March 31, 2020. We will be waiving all late fees for dog licenses in the meantime, due to the current pandemic. However, to comply with the Vilas County Animal Control Ordinance, we still need to complete our reports.

WI Statutes require the owner of a dog more than 5 months old to be licensed. WI state law requires dogs to be vaccinated against rabies no later than 5 months of age, and revaccinated within one year after the initial vaccination.

Town road limits are going on Friday, March 5, 2020 as signs are posted.
