Dog Licenses

Dog License 
All dogs 6 months and older must be licensed in the Town in which they reside and must wear the license tag on a collar around their neck.  All dog licenses are renewed by June 30th of each year.  Effective July 1st of each year, there is a $ 1.00 registration surcharge for each month a dog has been unregistered.  Licenses may be obtained provided you have a current rabies certificate and a verification of your dog having been neutered or spayed, if applicable.
