Dog Licenses

Dog licenses must be renewed during the month of April every year. The licensing year is May 1st through April 30th.

The license fee is $6 per dog.

Pit bull breeds require not less than $25,000 liability insurance, a form provided by the Town Clerk’s office must be completed, and the license fee is $10.

Vaccination Records
A valid rabies certificate is required at the time of registration. The vaccination must be current and valid into the licensing year.

Traditionally during the month of April, the Town holds a rabies clinic where dogs and cats can receive their rabies vaccination at a reduced rate. Licenses for dogs may be obtained at the clinic. Dates, times, and other details will be advertised in the Bristol Phoenix.

Animal Limit
No more than 3 dogs over the age of 6 months are allowed in any household before first obtaining a Kennel License from the Town.
