What are the license requirements?

The State of Maine requires dogs to be licensed at six months of age or within 10 days of ownership.

You must show evidence of current rabies vaccination at the time of registration (yearly) and a spay/neuter certificate, if applicable. 

Fees are $6 for spayed/neutered dogs and $11 for unspayed/unneutered dogs.

Renewal for dog licensing is no later than December 31 of each year. A late fee of $25 (in addition to the license fee) will be applied after January 31.
