The City of St. Michael no longer requires a City dog license. If an owner has more than two dogs, you must apply for a residential kennel license. Although dog licenses are no longer required for under two dogs, pet owners must still:

  • Have proof of rabies vaccination for all cats and dogs over the age of six months old.
  • Provide dogs and cats with some type of identification. Allowed identification includes microchips, tags or collars with contact information and phone number(s) inscribed on it. 
  • Apply for a Residential Kennel license if they have more than two dogs. (A pet owner may have a total of four dogs over the age of six months).
  • Adhere to all City Code requirements relating to Animal Control.  

The City of St. Michael contracts with the City of Monticello for animal control. Please contact their Animal Control Authority at 612-859-6989 and/or Wright County Sheriff's Office by dialing 9-1-1 if you require assistance with an animal.

All current residential kennel licenses will expire December 31, 2023. They run on a 2-year term. Residents with current licenses will need to reapply January 1, 2024 to be licensed January 1, 2024-December 31, 2025.
