Animal control will canvas town to check dog licenses

The survey will consist of Animal Control representatives visiting homes regarding licensing compliance for dogs and cats.
During the visits, Animal Control representatives will educate residents on how to properly license their pets.
All dogs, six months and older, are required by law to be licensed. Any residents found to have unlicensed dogs in their possession may be subjected to a $75 fine per dog.
All dogs and cats over the age of three months are required to have a rabies vaccination. Animal owners not in compliance may be subjected to a $136 dollar fine per animal.
Dog licenses are available at the City of Milford Clerk’s Office. A valid rabies certificate showing the dog is currently vaccinated for rabies is needed to obtain the license. Dogs must be licensed every year by June 30.
