It’s time once again to license your dog! Dog owners in Maine are required to license their dog(s) by December 31st of each year. There is a 31-day grace period after December 31st for owners to complete the licensing process without incurring a late fee. That grace period ends January 31, 2014. After that date there is a $25 late fee imposed for each dog not licensed!
To license a dog, Bangor residents may visit the city website at www.bangormaine.gov and follow the link to the State of Maine on-line dog registration program, visit the City Clerk’s office at 73 Harlow Street, or register through the mail by sending the proper documentation and payment to the City Clerk, 73 Harlow Street, Bangor ME 04401. On-line dog registrations are only available through January 31, 2014. After that, all licensing must be done through the City Clerk’s office. Owners who have lost their pet over the last year should contact the City Clerk’s office so that our records may be updated.
The fee for licensing a dog is $6.00 for a dog that has been spayed or neutered and $11.00 for a dog that is capable of reproducing. Owners are required to show proof of their dog’s rabies vaccination and also a copy of the spay/neuter certificate, if applicable. For further information, please call the City Clerk’s office at 992-4220.
