State law requires all dogs over six months of age to be licensed. Dog licenses are issued throughout the year; however, renewal of current licenses takes place during the months of May and June.
Licenses can be obtained at the Town Clerk's office or by mail with a stamped, self-addressed envelope to:
Canton Town Clerk

A $75 fine will be imposed by the Animal Control Officer on unlicensed dogs in accordance with the State Law.
Per Connecticut State Statute Section 22-338, all Dogs must be vaccinated against rabies and owners must submit a certificate to the Town Clerk when licensing their dog.
