Animal Control



Dogs are licensed each year during the month of June and licenses can be obtained via either walk-in at the Town Clerk's Office (Town Hall) or mail-in registration.


All new and renewal licenses require a copy of your dog's current rabies certificate from a veterinarian.  Licenses for a new dog that has not been licensed in the prior year also require a copy of the spay/neutered certificate, if applicable.


If licensing via walk-in registration, be sure to bring the required documents and payment (cash or check) with you at the time of application.  If licensing via mail-in registration, a self-addressed stamped envelope would be appreciated in addition to the required documents and proper payment.
