2018 Dog Licensing is underway. Under Maine law, dogs 6 months or older need to be licensed annually in their town of residence by December 31 (penalties do not accrue until January 31). You will need to bring your dog's current rabies certificate (or provide your veterinarian's name, so the Clerk can obtain the current rabies information). The fees for licensing are: $6 for an "altered" or "fixed" dog; and $11 for a dog that has not been fixed. Dogs can be licensed at the town office or online for an additional $1 fee at: https://www1.maine.gov/cgi-bin/online/dog_license/index.pl
Your dog license fees pay for our Local Animal Control Officers, the investigation of animal cruelty complaints and enforcement of animal welfare laws, care for sick and stray animals, compliance with rabies vaccinations and the return of lost dogs to their owners.
Thank you for licensing your dog!
