Westport Town Clerk Patricia Strauss announced today that beginning June 1 dog licenses for 2015-2016 may be obtained from her office.
All dogs over six months must be licensed. Last year, 2,776 dog tags were issued.
“Licensing your dog verifies that rabies immunization is up to date, as the dog owner must present a copy of the pet’s rabies certificate when obtaining a license,” said Strauss.
“Wearing its license will help identify your dog if it becomes lost or runs away so it can be returned home.”
Fees for dog licenses are $8 for neutered male or spayed female and $19 for male or female.
There will be a $1 penalty per month for renewal licenses issued after June 30.
“A $75 infraction will be issued for any nonlicensed dog and for any dog not wearing a current dog tag attached to a collar around its neck or body,” said Strauss.
Dog licenses may be obtained at the Town Clerk’s office, Room 105 in the Town Hall, 110 Myrtle Ave, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.; or by mailing payment, and required certificate(s), (all certificates will be returned with license), along with a self-addressed stamped return envelope to: Westport Town Clerk, P.O. Box 549, Westport, CT 06881.
Licenses being sold will cover the term from July 1 to June 30, 2016.
