Michigan law states that “every owned dog must have a dog license to the county you live in,” according to WILX 10.

The purpose of a dog license if to let everyone know that your dog is updated on their rabies vaccination, and it “enables Animal control officers to return your dog quickly if found,” according to the Ottawa County website.

“A dog license could be the difference between your dog being lost permanently or brought home by an animal control officer if it was to get out,” Kate Turner from Ingham County Animal Control tells WILX 10.

If a Michigan resident is caught without having a dog license, they may be given a citation with a fee they must pay.
