Dog Licensing

ALL DOG LICENSES EXPIRE APRIL 30TH

Dog LicensingYour dog must be licensed even if it stays inside. Current rabies certificate must be present at time of licensing.

A rabies clinic is held mid-April every year at the highway garage. Licenses will be available for residents in the clerks office. We will be open for dog licensing only, during the clinic.

To renew by mail, send a copy of current rabies certificate, self addressed stamped envelope and check made payable to the Town of New Ipswich for the appropriate amount. If a self addressed envelope is not included, licenses will be held with the Town Clerk for pick up.

License Fees:

  • Spayed or neutered.............................................$7.50
  • Puppy...................................................................$7.50
  • Person age 65 and over 1st dog only..................$3.00
  • Group license (5 or more dogs)...........................$20.00

After June 1st there is a $1.00 a month late fee. Licensing your dog on time saves money, licensing after June raises your taxes! I must start civil forfeiture procedure in June, this costs all of us. Then there is a $25.00 fine plus license fees and late fees. There is a $5.00 service charge as well. If these notices are ignored, it means you will appear in court. Once the process starts its out of my hands. This is all outlined in NH RSA 466

New licenses available starting the second week in January.

Rabies certificates must be current in our system to renew online.
