New in 2024 the Village of Waunakee will be transitioning away from the PetData program for licensing dogs and cats, and implementing new online licensing provided through Cloud Permit. This new system will enable the Village to better serve pet owners by processing applications in a timely manner and providing local customer service if needed. Please disregard any notifications you may receive from PetData.  

Rabies Vaccination

Proof of rabies vaccination from your veterinarian stating the manufacturer name, serial number of the vaccine, expiration date of the vaccination, and spay/neuter information must be provided before a license can be issued by to you. If your rabies certificate does not show spay/neuter information, a separate document proving this status must be submitted.
