Per state law all dogs over the age of six months must be vaccinated for rabies and licensed by the Town Clerk of the Town of residence. This enables lost dogs to be traced back to the owner and vaccination to be verified in the case of a dog bite. The license is good from July 1st through June 30th and must be renewed each year on or before June 30th. A valid rabies certificate must be presented at the time of licensing. If the certificate does not indicate if the dog has been spayed or neutered, a veterinarian’s certificate must be presented. If a dog is not licensed during the month of June, each month thereafter a one dollar ($1.00) per month penalty is added to the original fee.
Dog license fees are as follows:
· $8.00 per year, neutered or spayed
· $19.00 per year, non-neutered or non-spayed
· Lost Tag $.50
