All dogs must be licensed by March 31 each year. If your dog is already licensed in town, you will receive a renewal form in the mail at the beginning of January with your census form. You may either renew your dog’s license on-line (go to the Online Payments icon on the homepage of this website), by mail or in person at the Town Clerk’s office.
You must provide a certificate from your veterinarian showing when the rabies shot was given and when it expires. Puppies should be licensed as soon as they have had their first rabies shot. New dogs moving in to Manchester should be licensed immediately.
Unlicensed dogs will be ticketed by the Animal Control Officer. Dog licenses cost $25.00 for intact male or female dogs, and $20 for spayed or neutered dogs.
