2020 Cheboygan County Dog Licenses

The Cheboygan County Humane Society would like to remind you why it is important to have a current license on your dog.

  1. It’s state law in Michigan.  (Did you know that if you do not have a dog license for the current year you can get a ticket?) Avoid getting a ticket and obtain your license starting December 1st.
  2. To control and prevent the spread of rabies.  (Obtaining a license is easy and since you have to have your dog rabies vaccinated to do so it prevents the spread of rabies).
  3. Identification to return lost dogs to their owners. (Dog licenses are used when stray dogs are picked up to identify the owner. If you have a licenses it is a quick way to make sure your lost pet finds his/her way home).

2020 Cheboygan Dog licenses should be in the shape of a Michigan Mitt.  2020 will be Green in color.  If you don’t have this tag it is required to obtain.

Licenses are easy to get and if you get them before March 1st they are only half the price.

Cheech & Chong

Cheech is a 1 year old, he is neutered, chipped and UTD on shots. Cheech is here with his brother, Chong. They would love to go to the same home together as they have grown up together, but can be split up. Cheech will need training in all areas! He is halfway housetrained, walks decent on a leash. WE are told that he is NOT good with kids, and temperament with other dogs and cats are unknown. Cheech is very friendly but can be shy at times.

Chong is a 1 year old, he is neutered, chipped and UTD on shots. Chong is here with his brother Cheech. They would love to go home together, but can be split up.

Kitty is a 5 year old spayed female looking for her forever home.  She is not good with other cats but is very friendly.  She has been using her litter box here at the shelter and would love for you to come out and take a look at her today.  She is up to date on her shots, microchipped and ready for her new home.  Her adoption fee is $25.


Amazon Smile Thank you


Amazon smile funding has been a wonderful resource for us at the Cheboygan County Humane Society. We have a story we would like to share with you about how your contributions have helped make the lives of the animals here at the shelter better. We would like to share Meathead’s story.  Meathead is a 4 year old English Bull dog.  He was living in a garbage can chained to a tree behind a house.  When he was found, he was emaciated, with open wounds on his ears from fly-strike and in need of extra care and love. Meathead came to the shelter where he was fed regularly and antibiotics were placed on his ears.  He began to gain weight and his ears started to heal.  As time went on he was put up for adoption where many people came out and looked at him.  Meathead loves anyone who gives him attention and immediately bonded with a gentleman, who adopted him.  He now lives a great life, he goes for walks and on adventures with his new owner and even gets to sleep in his bed.  No more garbage can for this beautiful dog!

We also would like to remind everyone that you can help by using our link at  when you shop online with amazon.
