Your license is renewable once a year, during the anniversary month of the initial registration of your dog. The Town Clerk’s office sends renewal letters, to the address of record, for the owner by the first day of the month that the license is due. You can renew the license anytime within the month, if your rabies certificate is current and the license is not overdue. You can submit your updated rabies information to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will update the information in the system so you can make an online payment.
A Failure to Renew by the end of the anniversary month will initiate the first violation notice. Additional fees will apply every thirty (30) days.
