Wisconsin State Statute

It is required by Wisconsin State Statute for all dog and cat owners in Milwaukee County to license their pets. Simply stated, a tagged animal is much easier to reunite with his/her owner. Please see the MADACC link below to review the benefits animals with licenses receive when found while wearing a current license should they happen to be found as a stray in the community. All municipalities in Milwaukee County now use the same fee structure for licensing.

For all services offered by MADACC, please follow this link:

Wisconsin State Statutes, Section 174 makes it mandatory for dogs and cats to be licensed. See the Municipal Ordinance on animal regulations at Municipal Code, Ch. 07 Licensing and Regulations, Sec 7.40 Animal Regulations.
