All dog licenses must be obtained from your municipal town, village or city treasurer.  The collecting official shall assess and collect a late fee of $5.00 from every owner of a dog five (5) months of age or over, if the owner failed to obtain a license prior to April 1st of each year, or within 30 days of acquiring ownership of a licensable dog or if the owner failed to obtain a license on or before the dog reached licensable age.
