Dog Licensing

Dog Licensing

Dogs need to be licensed after reaching the age of 6 months or after it has been with the family for 10 days if adopted. Dogs need to be licensed in the town of residence of the owner.

The cost to license a dog in the state of Maine: $6.00 for spayed/neutered, and $11.00 for a dog that is not "altered". In order to license your dog, you will need a current rabies certificate and a spay/neuter certificate if your dog is newly "fixed'.

All dogs must be licensed for the upcoming year before December 31st. There is a grace period of one month after December 31st in which the owner can register their dog without a late fee. A mandatory late fee of $25 takes effect as of February 1; Town's do not have the authority to waive this fee.

For more information on dog licensing, see MSRA Title 7
