Dog Licenses

All dogs 6 months or older must be licensed
per the State of Connecticut. Licensing provides the information
to locate the owner in a timely manner if the dog is caught by
animal control. Without a license fines may be imposed.
The license law is enforced by animal control.

You must renew your license annually in the month of June.  
A dog can be licensed at any time during the year, but you will incur
a late fee of $1 per month late(or fraction thereof),
if you license after June 30. If the dog turns 6 months of age
or is new to town after the June deadline, you will not incur a late fee.

You can apply for a dog license in person or via mail.
