DOG LICENSINGPosted Oct 06, 2020
The next item most people ask about is, "What do I do about my dog?" All dogs from the time they get their first rabies shot as puppies, must be licensed. Fees are: $9.00 not altered, $6.50 altered & $6.50 for puppies under 7 months old, first dog owned by a senior citizen (65+) $2.00 and $20.00 Group license (4+ dogs). Please bring documentation from your veterinarian showing rabies inoculation with rabies tag number and the expiration; also if the dog has been neutered or spayed, bring that documentation. Without these papers we cannot license the dog. If during the move you lost these documents, I will accept an email or fax from the veterinarians' office directly to my office; email: firstname.lastname@example.org or fax is 603-899-2108. Though cats must have a current rabies shot, we do not license them. Also the leash law is in affect (RSA 466:13-a); no dog shall be allowed to roam freely from their yard, each time dog is found roaming the dog officer may charge $25.00 per incident per dog. Every year the dog license must be renewed by APRIL 30th. It is your responsibility as a dog owner to know this information. We do not send out notices to remind you. Please check your rabies expiration in March to make sure it is current, I cannot renew the license if shot has expired.
