All dog and cats licenses must be renewed by April 1, 2020.  Any animal licensed after that date is subject to a $5.00 late fee per animal.  According to Wisconsin State Statutes, evidence of unexpired rabies vaccination is required for all cats and dogs before a license can be issued.  Therefore, the City of Fort Atkinson will not license any animal without proof of current rabies vaccination. 

The costs for the licenses are as follows: Dogs and Cats – Spayed/Neutered -- $10.00, Unspayed/Unneutered -- $15.00.  License fees must be paid by cash or check, no credit/debit cards accepted.  

Licenses may be obtained at the City Clerk’s office, 101 North Main Street, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.  There is an after hours drop box on the North Water Street West side of the Municipal Building.  However, if using the after hours drop box, a self-addressed stamped envelope must also be provided. 

If licenses are not obtained by April 1, 2020, there will not be a reminder sent by the City Clerk’s Office.  A listing of delinquent licenses will be turned over to the Police Department for further action.

If you had an animal licensed with the City last year and no longer have that animal, please call the City Offices at 563-7760 so that the animal may be removed from our listing.
