Dog licensing will begin on June 1st. The law requires that every dog must be licensed once it becomes six months old and then annually every June. Any residents who get a new dog at any point during the year, must obtain a license for it within 30 days of acquiring the new dog. New dog license applications are available here. For dogs currently licensed, renewals will be mailed out prior to June 1st. We encourage you to renew/license your dogs by mail, however we will be accepting walk-in registrations.
