2024 WIN WAG Photo Contest


June is dog licensing month and we are celebrating with a contest!

If you have a dog who is six months or older state law requires you obtain a dog license. All dogs must have a current rabies vaccination certificate issued by a veterinarian. Your dog can only be licensed if the Town Clerk’s office has on record current, unexpired rabies information for your dog. Dogs who have been spayed or neutered are licensed at a reduced rate. Proof of spaying or neutering must be provided when you license your dog for the first time. You can license your dog in person at the Town Clerk’s office, by mail or online (online registration not available for first time licenses).

For more information on dog licenses please follow this link.
