2023 Census and Dog Licenses
If you have not registered your dog yet, please do so immediately. As of May 1st, a late charge has been assessed as your dog license expired on March 31st. To apply, come to the Town Clerk’s office, with proof of current rabies vaccination certificate which is obtainable from your veterinarian. You may also mail in the application you received with your census form with rabies certificate or place in the blue drop box outside the front entrance of the Municipal Center. You may also apply for your dog license online by going to the Town website and clicking “Online Transactions”. Once processed, dog licenses will be mailed to you. In accordance with a new Town Bylaw, there is a one-month grace period before a late fee of $25 per household is assessed on May 1st. Beginning in June, a one-time $50 fine will be levied, followed by referral to the magistrate of Milford District Court. So please apply for your dog license to avoid potential fine or day in court!
