As a resident of Connecticut, it is the law to license your dog in the Town Clerk’s office of the Town in which you reside as soon as the dog has reached the age of 6 months.  To avoid delays and penalties and/or fines, please visit the Town Clerk’s office before June 30th of the current year.  A current rabies certificate and, if the dog is spayed or neutered, a spay or neuter certificate is required if we do not already have it on file.  Payments received after June 30th will incur an additional $1 per month late fee for unlicensed dogs over the age of 6 months.

Reminder:  If you are new to town or have a new dog, you are required to register the dog within 30 days even if it is not during the month of June.

Male or Female: $19.00
Spayed or Neutered: $8.00
10-tag Kennel: $51.00
Transfer from another CT Town: $1.00
Replacement for lost current tag: $.50

Please call the Town Clerk’s office if you no longer have your dog so we can update our files.
