Connecticut state law requires dogs six (6) months of age or older to be licensed. Dog licenses are issued throughout the year; however, renewal of current licenses takes place during the month of June each year.
Dog licenses are purchased at the Town Clerk’s Office in person, by mail or via the drop box located in front of Town Hall, up the steps to your left. If using mail or the drop box, please include all documentation, a check with the appropriate fee, and a stamped self-addressed envelope for return of the license and tag.
