All owners of dogs in Racine County are required to obtain rabies vaccinations and dog licenses under WI State statutes – Section 174.052. Failure to comply with vaccination requirements may require the owner to forfeit not less than $50, nor more than $100 per dog. Additional fines and penalties may be assessed to owners of unlicensed dogs under Racine County statutes.
Dog License forms may be downloaded by clicking here or from the Village Clerk (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the Village Treasurer at email@example.com or (262) 681-0898. The annual fee is $25 per dog. Please make checks payable to the Village of North Bay. Unlicensed dogs and dog owners will be reported to the Racine County Sheriff. Payments must be received by April 1; a penalty of $5 will be applied to late payments (excluding residents new to the village or dogs acquired after this date.)
If you’ve recently moved here and your dog is currently licensed in another community, please provide the Treasurer with a copy of your license and you will not be required to re-license your pet here for the current year.
