The Ottawa 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 new three-year rabies vaccination within the past 30 days.
As a courtesy, the Treasurer's Office will mail license renewal applications the month before the license expires. Licenses are conveniently available:
- By Mail: Application
- Online: Renewal or Purchase
