The Livingston County Treasurer's office sends reminder postcards sixty days prior to the rabies expiration date. Rabies vaccinations can be administered by a veterinarian any day of the month that the vaccination expires. Rabies vaccinations must cover the complete licensing period.
The license must be purchased by the end of the rabies expiration month or a twenty dollar late fee will be added to the cost of your license.
