Dog Licenses

All dogs living in Clinton over the age of six months must be licensed annually at the Town Clerk's office. Dogs must wear the tag at all times. Dog licenses are to be renewed in the month of June each year.
When a dog is acquired, the new owner has 30 days in which to license it. 

In order to license a dog, a current certificate of rabies vaccination must be presented. 

If a dog is neutered or spayed, that certificate must be presented as well.

If you are licensing or renewing by mail, please include a self addressed stamped envelope for return.

If you move, or no longer have your dog, please contact us so we can update our files
