Dog Licenses

Connecticut State Law requires all dogs 6 months of age or older to be licensed in the town of residency. Proof of current rabies vaccination and spaying or neutering, if applicable, must be provided at the time of the application. Individuals who renew their dog’s license after the June 30th deadline must pay a late fee. 

Licensing your dog is an easy thing to do!

You can accomplish this in one of three ways:

    By Mail: To Claudia Weber, Town Clerk, P.O. Box 447, New Canaan, CT 06840.
