Stonington reminds dog owners to renew licenses

Stonington — Town Clerk Cynthia Ladwig is reminding dog owners here that all dogs over 6 months old must be licensed by June 30 for the 2020-21 year. Reminder postcards are scheduled to be mailed on May 26.

Because Town Hall is closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all renewals must be done by mail or placed in the drop box at Town Hall.

Dog owners must enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope with two stamps for the return of the license and tag. If the rabies information on the renewal card is not current, the updated rabies certificate must be included and it will be returned with the license and tag.

The cost of a dog license is $8 for a neutered or spayed dog and $19 for nonaltered dogs. After July 31, a penalty charge will be imposed of $1 per month for each month that the dog is not licensed.

For more information call the Town Clerk’s Office at (860) 535-5060.
