What is a permanent dog tag?

As of January 1, 2012, Muskegon County began issuing Permanent Dog Tags (the metal charm). This does not mean that you do not have to renew the license anymore. You are still required to renew the actual license every year / 3 years and provide proof of current rabies vaccination, but you will not receive a new metal tag every year. It can be replaced at any time if it is lost, upon owner’s request.
