Dog License Reminder

Manchester Town Clerk, Darryl Thames, reminds all dog owners that dog license month began in JUNE. All dogs six months or older residing in Connecticut MUST have a current license.   

You can purchase or renew dog licenses in person at the Town Clerk’s office, but we are asking residents to continue licensing their dogs via drop boxes at Town Hall, by mail, email, or phone payments. Town Clerk Office hours for licenses/renewals are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM, Tuesday and Thursday 1:00 – 5:00 PM. Fees are $8 for a spayed or neutered dog and $19 for an unaltered dog. The license is valid from July 1, 2022, through June 30, 2023. Licenses expired on June 30, 2022, and after this date, there is a $1.00 per month late penalty.

If you choose to mail in your dog license application, please include a current rabies vaccination certificate, a neutering/spaying certificate (if applicable), and a check payable to “Manchester Town Clerk’s Office” for the appropriate fee, and a self-addressed stamped envelope. The license and tag are mailed to you for mail and email renewals.
