2023 Dog licenses are available at LCHS. You do not need the dog license form included in property tax mailings but you do need a copy of the rabies certificate from the veterinarian.
Licenses are $10 for a spayed/neutered dog and $30 for an unaltered dog.
– Please note, kennel licenses can only be purchased through a town treasurer/municipality – LCHS does not sell kennel licenses.
You can purchase a 2022 dog license using the following three options:
1. mail a copy of the rabies certificate, payment, and information for the dog license to:
LCHS, 310 N. Memorial Drive, Merrill WI 54452
2. Visit LCHS during our open hours (12pm-4pm Monday-Saturday, 12pm-2pm Sunday). You must bring a copy of the rabies certificate signed by the veterinarian. The certificate should have the tag number, vaccine manufacturer, and vaccine serial number. LCHS cannot sell a dog license without a current rabies certificate.
3. You can purchase a dog license through your municipality (see the contact list below). Licenses can be purchased through municipalities by appointment or with your property taxes. Make sure to contact your Town Treasurer in advance to ask the exact procedure.
