Dog Licenses

2020 Dog Licenses will be available at the Town Hall beginning October 15, 2019

All dogs 6 months and older must have a license.  Every dog must be licensed by December 31st each year.  In order to obtain a license for your dog, the owner must present a current Rabies Certificate obtained from a veterinarian (which has the veterinarian's seal on it.).  This certificate will show that your dog has received its rabies shot within the past three years.

All dog licenses will expire December 31st each year.  Renewal of licenses for the following year can be done at the Town Clerk's Office anytime after October 15th.

Dog License Fees

$11.00 per year for dogs NOT spayed/neutered

as of February 1st  - $25. late fee PLUS License Fee


Also, bring with you proof that the dog(s) is spayed or neutered.  If you already have shown proof to the Town Clerk's Office, then additional proof is not necessary.

Per State Law.........any dog license that is re-licensed after January 31st will be subject to a $25.00 late fee PLUS the regular licensing fee. Title 7 §3923-A(4)

You may also re-license your dog through the mail.  You must send a copy of the current Rabies Certificate, as well as evidence of spaying/neutering if we don't already have it on file, along with a check payable to the "Town of Berwick" for the appropriate fee, and a self-addressed, stamped envelope.  We will process the license and return the material to you.
