Each owner or keeper of a dog of six months of age or older must obtain a license in the Town Clerk’s Office in the town where such dog is kept on or before June 30th, annually, or at such time as such dog becomes six months old or 30 days upon receipt of a new dog. A rabies certificate signed by a veterinarian indicating the date of the vaccination and the duration of the immunity must be provided at the time of licensing as well as proof of alteration (neutering or spaying). The license is $8.00 for each neutered male or spayed female and $19.00 for each un-neutered male dog and each un-spayed female dog.

Connecticut General Statutes mandates the Town Clerk to collect a $1 late fee for each month or fraction thereof for failure to obtain a license prior to June 30th.

Any dog found without a license after the licensing period will also be subject to an infraction by the Dog Warden.
