Marquette Dog & Cat Owners

 

Dog and cat licenses are available at the Marquette City Clerk’s office, located in City Hall at 300 W. Baraga Ave. in Marquette. A current rabies certificate from your veterinarian is necessary to obtain the license. Licenses can be purchased for one or three years but expire with the rabies vaccination and must be renewed at that time.

 

Licenses are required by law for all dogs and cats whether they leave the house or not.

The City also offers a seasonal off-leash area (OLA) for dogs. The off-leash area is located in Tourist Park and is available from Nov. 1 through April 30 of each year. Prior to utilizing the area, a dog owner must purchase an OLA permit from the Clerk's office.
 

Also, please remember that -- with the exception of permitted use of the OLA -- you can be ticketed and fined for letting animals run loose in the City, and for not cleaning up after them. Please take the time to leash and clean up after your pet, and help keep our city beautiful.
