MADISON — The Madison Health Department reminds all residents to renew their dog / cat pet licenses by January 31.

You must submit proof that your dog(s) has a current rabies vaccination, which must be valid until at least October 31, 2019. Cats should have vaccination prior to licensing.

The owners of all dogs seven months of age or older are required to annually apply to the licensing clerk of the municipality in which he or she resides for a dog license. In order for the license to be issued, the owner must present proof that a licensed veterinarian has vaccinated the dog against rabies and that the duration of immunity from that vaccination extends through at least (10) ten months of the (12) twelve month licensing period. An exemption to the rabies inoculation requirement shall be granted if the owner presents written certification from a licensed veterinarian that the dog cannot be vaccinated due to a medical condition or course of therapy.

Fees for each animal registered are $15.00 if spayed/neutered and $18.00 non-spayed/neutered.

A $10.00 late fee will be applied after February 1, 2019. Cash or checks payable to: Borough of Madison.
