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 found loose. Without a license fines can be imposed. The license law is enforced by animal control.

You must renew your license annually within 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 (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 obtain a dog license in person or via mail.
