Dog Licenses

Maine State Law requires all dogs to be licensed that are 6 months of age or within 10 days after ownership. Licenses expire December 31st  of each year and are due to be renewed by January 31st. New owners must provide veterinarian documentation of current rabies vaccination and a neutering/spayed certificate if applicable.
  • If your license is not renewed by January 31st of each year, a $25.00 late fee will be assessed.
Licenses may be requested by mail if a rabies certificate and neutering/spayed certificate is sent along with a self-addressed stamped envelope and a check made out to the Town of Kittery with the corresponding fee for your dog(s).  Licence requests should be addressed to:

Town Clerk
200 Rogers Road
Kittery, ME 03904

Online dog licensing is available with the State of Maine Online Dog Licensing Service, located here: Online Dog License Renewal

If you have registered your dog before, you will receieve a renewal reminder each October.  Please check your spam folder if you have not recieved your reminder by the end of the month.
