State law requires that all dogs 6 months old or within ten days of ownership are licensed in the town/city where they reside. This annual license is due December 31 of each year. A rabies certificate and neuter/spay certificate (if applicable) must be presented at the time of licensing. In order to avoid the $25.00 late fee, your dog must be licensed by January 31

Licensing fees are: $11.00 for an unaltered dog, $6.00 for an altered dog.
