Know The Law

Make sure you comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Not sure if it's a service animal?  

  • Is this a service animal required because of a disability?

  • What work or task has the animal been trained to perform?

The Jackson County Treasurers Office will now be following these guidelines when issuing a dog license.  For more information please review Qualifying Your Service Animal (PDF)

The Jackson County Treasurers Office is pleased to announce the Dog License Campaign (PDF) that provides a convenient online payment and a new 3 year dog license option.

  • Michigan State Law requires ALL dogs to be rabies vaccinated and licensed at four months age.

  • Please have proof of spay/neuter and proof of current rabies vaccination.

  • With a 3 year rabies vaccine, the County of Jackson is making available a 3 year dog license.

  • Licensing your dog is one of the most important things you can do as a pet owner.

  • A license tells everyone that your pet is not a homeless stray.

  • Licensing your dog helps to control and prevent the spread of rabies.
