Licensing your four-legged friend ensures that:

  • You will not get a fine for not having your dog licensed - It's the law!!
  • It is easier to find your pup if they wonder away
  • Half the proceeds go to helping to stop animal cruelty in Maine and supporting our local animal shelter

The dog licensing season is here, so to help with your schedule this busy time of year, we will be announcing rabies clinics around the area for your convenience.  Although you will not be able to register your dogs at the clinics (except for the one in Somerville), it will get one step out of the way for you.  

Bring proof of previous rabies vaccinations so your pet can receive a 3 year shot rather than a 1 year. All animals must be on a leash or in a carrier.

You can register your dog anytime between October 15 and January 31 at the town office. You can also register online by clicking here
