Dog Licensing



Due to the circumstances surrounding Covid-19, Redford Township has decided to make the purchase of the 2021 dog licenses by MAIL ONLY! There will be no walk-in licenses sold at the window. Purchase your dog license in the month of June for the reduced rate of $15 per dog or $10 for seniors, with proof of age.

If you purchased a 2020 Dog License you will receive an application for renewal of your license via mail by June 1st. If you did not receive your application, have a new dog or are a new resident, you can download the Application.

Return your completed application along with payment (check or money order ONLY) made payable to Redford Township, proof of age (if asking for the senior discount) and proof of rabies.

Applications can be returned in the dropbox located at the Public Services Building, 12200 Beech Daly, Redford, MI  48239 or sent through the mail. Once processed, your license and paperwork will be returned to you via U.S. Mail. Licenses will be processed in the order they are received. Please be patient as the Township is working with reduced staff and it may take longer to receive your license back.


Dog licenses are available for one calendar year from June to June.  Licenses may be purchased at the Public Service Building, 12200 Beech Daly, during regular business hours, Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
