Kent County Animal Control Updates Licensing Programdogs

by Erin Nemastil

Kent County Animal Control now offers one- and three- year dog licenses available for purchase year-round from veterinarians who perform the prerequisite rabies vaccination after Jan. 2, 2014. That means only making one stop for getting your dog’s rabies vaccination and dog licensing.

In Wyoming, the following veterinary offices are participating in this service:

Animal Medical Center of Wyoming

2330 44th St. SW

(616) 531-7387

Wyoming Animal Hospital

2754 Burlingame Ave SW

(616) 538-9700


Due to the county’s proof of rabies vaccination requirement, Kent County dog licenses are longer be available for purchase at Wyoming City Hall.  Licenses can still be purchased separately with proof of rabies vaccinations at the Kent County Animal Shelter, located at 740 Fuller Ave. NW in Grand Rapids. For additional information, contact Kent County Animal Control at (616) 632-7300.
