June is dog license month. All dogs six months or older residing in Connecticut must have a current license.

Dogs must wear the tag at all times — a dog without a tag is presumed to be unlicensed and is not protected by law.

A tag must not be used on any dog other than the dog described in the license bearing corresponding number. Owners are liable for damage done by their dog, including damage to shrubs, flowers or trees.

Dog license fees are $8 for a spayed or neutered dog and $19 for an unaltered dog. The license is valid July 1, 2018, through June 30, 2019. All current licenses expire on June 30, 2018.

After June 30, there is a state mandated $1 per month late penalty. Any dog owner found to have an unlicensed dog may be subject to a fine from Animal Control.
