All dogs are required, by law, to be licensed within the county they reside within 30 days of turning four (4) months of age, or within 30 days of acquiring a dog older than four months or within 30 days of moving to Midland County. If the dog is not licensed in a timely manner, a $20 delinquent fee will be assessed. The Midland County Dog License Program includes one-year and three-year licenses available for purchase throughout the year. Licenses should be renewed by the last day of the month in which the rabies vaccination expires. To qualify for a three-year license the dog must have received a new three-year rabies vaccination within the past 30 days.
Licenses are conveniently available at many area veterinarian offices and by mail or in-person at the Midland County Treasurer’s Office. View a complete list HERE
