Animal Control

It's that time of year again!  Time to renew your dog's license!
Renewal reminder postcards were mailed out in May.  If you did not receive yours, please contact the Town Clerk's office at 860-693-7870.

We've got our Top Dog program again this year.  If you renew before July 1st, your fur-baby will be entered into a drawing to win a basket of goodies and be 'crowned' Top Dog!  Buddy, seen above with his humans, is our current Top Dog and will peacefully (albeit, reluctantly) turn over the reigns to the new Top Dog on July 1st.       

Dog Licensing Form

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 month of June.

Licenses can be obtained at the Town Clerk's office or by mail with a stamped, self-addressed envelope to:

Canton Town Clerk 
c/o Dog Licensing
PO Box 168
Collinsville, CT 06022

Please include:

  • Completed Dog Licensing Form
  • Current rabies certificate (or documentation of current rabies vaccination due date)
  • Self-addressed, stamped envelope
  • $19 for an unaltered dog, or $8 for a spayed/neutered dog
  • For License RENEWALS: Add $1 per month if after June 30th

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.
