Dog Licensing

Dog licenses expire December 31st of each year.

If you are the owner of a dog 5 months of age or older, every year you must purchase a dog license from the Town Treasurer. All dogs over 4 months of age are required to be vaccinated for rabies by a veterinarian and re-vaccinated one year later, and every three years thereafter. This is a STATE IMPOSED LAW. No dog license will be issued without RABIES VACCINATION CERTIFICATE being presented to the treasurer. An invoice from your veterinarian is not sufficient. If paying by mail, please enclose rabies vaccination certificate(s) and they will be returned to you with your license.

A $5 late fee will be assessed for each licensable dog that is not licensed by March 31. Please notify the Treasurer at the Town of Rhine office if you no longer own your dog that was licensed in Town of Rhine this year or last year.

Dog licenses can be obtained at the Town Hall during regular office hours, or License applications can be mailed to Town of Rhine, P.O. Box 117, Elkhart Lake, WI 53020. A self-addressed stamped envelope is required.

If requesting a dog license when paying property taxes, pay for each item separately. Checks for property taxes must be separate from payment for dog licenses. Checks payable to Town of Rhine.
