Any person who keeps or operates a kennel may, in lieu of individual licenses, apply to the County Treasurer for a Kennel License entitling you to keep or operate a kennel.
Inspection of Kennel
Each kennel must be inspected by the Allegan County Animal Control prior to the issuance of a kennel permit, in compliance with the Allegan County Animal Control Ordinance. Additional inspections may occur at any time to assure compliance with the ordinance and to prevent any community health problem.
To set up an appointment for an inspection by the Allegan County Animal Control,
Any person operating a Dog Kennel shall obtain a kennel license and tags from the Allegan County Treasurer. Submit the Kennel Inspection Certificate from Animal Control along with cash or check made payable to the Allegan County Treasurer.
The fee to be paid for a kennel license is $10.00 for 10 dogs or less, and $25.00 for more than 10 dogs. A fee of double the original license is charged for each previously licensed kennel, whose kennel license is applied for after June 1.
