Do You Own a Dog?

Did you know that dogs must be registered with the Town Clerk by April 1st of each year? Under NH RSA 466:1 Procuring License; Tag. – Every owner or keeper of a dog 4 months old or over shall annually, cause it to be registered, numbered, described, and licensed for one year in the office of the clerk of the town in which the dog is kept, and shall cause it to wear around its neck a collar to which shall be attached a metal tag with the following information thereon: the name of the city or town, year of issue of license and its registered number. The tag and license shall be furnished by the clerk at the expense of the town. Regardless of when the license is obtained, the license shall be effective from May 1 of each year to April 30 of the subsequent year. You must show a current rabies certificate and the fees are $6.50 for spayed/neutered dogs, $9.00 for unspayed/unneutered, and $2.00 if the owner is over 65 yrs. old. If you have any questions, please contact the Town Clerk’s office at 356-2300.
