As dog licensing month (June) is quickly approaching, now might be a good time to check your dog’s rabies vaccination to make sure it is up to date. Vaccinations are usually good for three years after an initial one-year shot. The rabies expiration date is on the paperwork provided by your vet.
Dog licensing will commence as usual June 1. Every dog must be licensed when it becomes six months old and then annually every June. Dog owners acquiring a new dog must license their dog within 30 days of acquiring the dog.
During this pandemic, dog owners are strongly encouraged to obtain or renew their dog licenses by mail. Should you choose to do so, please download, print and fill out this registration form. Include the completed form, a copy of the rabies vaccination certificate signed by your dog’s veterinarian, a check made payable to Town of Lyme for the fee and a self-addressed stamped envelope. We will mail you the dog tag and registration.
Per Governor Lamont’s Executive Order No. 7II, the start date for the imposition of a late fee for obtaining a dog license has been extended from July 1, 2020, to August 1, 2020. Town Clerks will begin imposing the late fee beginning August 1, at a rate of $1.00 per month commencing with August.
Should you have any questions, please email the Town Clerk at email@example.com.
