The 2021-2022 Dog license renewal will be available for purchase as of June 1, 2021. Residents are encouraged to renew licenses online or by mail to support social distance requirements. The online registration system will accept Master Card, Visa, Discover, and American Express. Credit card fees will apply on all transactions.
Dog licenses with a current rabies certificate on file may be renewed online. Once the transaction is completed the license and a tag will be mailed to you. Dogs that require an updated rabies certificate can be mailed in with payment or request your vet to fax in the certificate to 860-668-3312.
Connecticut State Law requires all dogs six months of age or older must be licensed in the town of residency. Proof of current rabies vaccination and spay or neutering, if applicable, must be provided at the time of the application. Rabies tags alone are not an accepted proof of vaccination. After July 1, 2021, by law there will be an additional charge of $1.00 per month for each month the dog is not licensed.
The yearly dog registration period set by State mandate runs from June 1 through May 31.
All fees are set by Connecticut State Statue and are as follows:
Dogs who are spayed or neutered $8. Dogs who are not spayed or neutered $19.
Renewal reminders have been mailed in late May for currently licensed dogs. Dog licenses will not be processed the same day if dropped off.
Updated rabies certificates are always welcome to keep your dog’s certification current.
