*New changes to Dog Tag Registration: Please provide a copy of your dog's rabies vaccination along with your completed application to receive your 2018 dog tag. The Town collects this information to ensure all residents are safe if a dog is found at-large.
EVERY OWNER of a dog shall obtain a dog tag from the Town during normal business hours (8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday to Friday).
Your dog is dependent on you for its basic needs: food, shelter, care, exercise, and medical attention. It is your responsibility to ensure that your dog is properly identified through the Town’s Licensing with a dog tag, dog vaccination tags, and possibly through other means such as tattoos. If your dog is lost, the tag number and year may be identified through the Town Office or the Animal Control Officer.
Be a responsible dog owner.
