Town Clerk, Madison, CT


Per CT State Statue Sec. 22-337, every dog, except dogs kept under a kennel license as provided in Section 22-342, must be licensed when it becomes six months old and then annually every June. The Town Clerk issues the dog licenses for the dogs in his or her town.

    Due to COVID-19 Governor Lamont issued an Executive Order No. 7II to extend the start date for imposing the late fee for obtaining a dog license from July 1, 2020 to August 1, 2020.  Ex:  Aug. $1.00, Sept. $2.00, etc.

Any blind, deaf or mobility impaired person who is owner or keeper of a dog trained to guide and assist him shall receive a license and tag for such dog, and no fee shall be charged. Also, dogs between six months and one year of age, placed for training as guide dogs, shall receive a license and tag at no fee, provided satisfactory evidence is presented that the dog was placed by an organization which supplies such guide dogs.

Anyone who becomes owner or keeper of an unlicensed dog aged six months old or older must license the dog within 30 days of acquisition. 

Any person becoming owner of an already CT licensed dog may present the license and tag to the town clerk and, for a fee of $1.00, shall receive a new license and tag in his name. If a dog owner moves his residence to another town, he must present the license and tag to the town clerk of his new town who, for a fee of $.50, issues a new license and tag. The Town Clerk must retain the old license and tag in both these instances.
