WESTPORT, Conn. – To avoid financial penalties, Westport residents with pets need to obtain or renew their dog licenses by Tuesday, June 30, according to a press release.

All dogs older than 6 months must be licensed each year through the Westport Town Clerk’s office.

“Licensing your dog verifies that rabies immunization is up to date, as the dog owner must present a copy of the pet’s rabies certificate when obtaining a license,” Town Clerk Patricia Strauss said in a press release. “Wearing its license will help identify your dog if it becomes lost or runs away so it can be returned home.”

Fees are $8 for neutered male or spayed female dogs, and $19 for dogs that are not spayed or neutered.

The licensing term is July 1 through June 30, 2016.

Residents renewing dog licenses after the end of June will be levied a $1 penalty per month; also, any non-licensed dog or dog not wearing a current tag on its neck or body collar could subject its owner to a $75 fine.

Residents needing dog licenses can visit the Town Clerk’s office, Room 105 in Westport Town Hall, 110 Myrtle Ave. between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. weekdays.

Alternatively, residents can mail payment, the required certificates (which will be returned), and a self-addressed stamped envelope to Westport Town Clerk, P.O. Box 549, Westport, CT 06881.
