Dog Licenses

Dog Licenses are available at the Town Clerk's Office for the calendar year beginning in January. A current rabies certificate must be presented when applying for a dog license. Dogs must be licensed by March 31st. Licenses not paid by April 1st will be subject to a $25 fee for the by-law violation.

Single licenses (not kennels) may be purchased through the mail by filling out the Dog Licensing Form (see attachment below) and sending it in after following the instructions or clicking on the "Dog Licenses" on the left side of your screen. Please note: there are small additional fees for processing the dog license online, none of which are kept by the town.

Current Dog License Fee Schedule

  • Neutered/Spayed Dog: $10
  • Dog "Intact": $13
  • Kennel: $30
  • Hobby Kennel: $60
  • Commercial Kennel: $150

People over 70 years of age do not pay a licensing fee for one dog but remain responsible for providing a rabies certificate and for paying the license fee for any additional dog(s).
