County dog license deadline extended
Sanilac County has extended the period in which to buy dog licenses without penalty.
The last day for county residents to purchase 2010 dog licenses without penalty is now Monday, March 1.
Dog licenses may be purchased through the mail or at the County Treasurer's Office, Room 204, County Courthouse, Sandusky, MI 48471.
Michigan law requires that all dogs four months old or older be licensed by the county in which the owner resides. No license can be issued without proof of current rabies vaccination signed by a licensed veterinarian.
Dog license fees remain at $7.50 for spayed/neutered dogs and $15 for male or female dogs. Seniors, 65 years and older, will be eligible for reduced dog licenses at a cost of $5 for spayed/neutered dogs, and $12.50 for male or female dogs.
Dog licenses purchased after March 1 are considered delinquent, and assessed an additional $20 penalty per dog license.
