OTTAWA COUNTY, MI (WHTC) -- The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office has been going door to door since early June to take a dog census. So far, they’ve been in Holland, Georgetown, Allendale and Park Townships. Census takers are headed to Grand Haven and Zeeland Townships over the next few weeks. Michigan law requires that all dogs four months and older be licensed. A license is proof that the dog has been vaccinated for rabies and makes it easier to get dogs back to their owner. It also saves money because the dog can be returned to its owner instead of ending up in the shelter. Homes with unlicensed dogs will be given information on how and where to get the licensed. Visit miOttawa.org to order the license online or through the mail. If your dog doesn’t have its shots, get him vaccinated and you can get the license at your vet.
