Why should you license your dog?

Dog and cats are required to be licensed in the City of Waukesha. The due date for obtaining your pet's license is March 31st of every year. The fee for spayed/neutered pets is $10 per animal/per year. The fee for pets not spayed or neutered is $15 per animal/per year. If the license fee is not applied for prior to April 1st, there will be an additional late fee of $5 per animal.

All dogs and cats over the age of 5 months need to be licensed. We will need proof of a current rabies vaccination. An invoice or statement from your veterinarian which shows the rabies tag number and expiration date is acceptable proof.

No more than 2 dogs over the age of 3 months shall be kept in any dwelling unit in the City.  And no person shall keep or maintain more than 2 cats over the age of 6 months in any household in the City.

This is regulated by sections 174.05 and 174.07 of the Wisconsin Statutes
and section 11.22 of the Waukesha Municipal Code.
