June is the month to register dogs in Connecticut! Proof of a current rabies vaccination is required. Fees are $8/year for spayed or neutered dogs; $19/year for unaltered animals. Registration is required for all dogs over 6 months old. Contact your town/city clerk to complete this important process.
To help pet owners meet the rabies vaccination requirements, CVMA sponsors rabies vaccine clinics throughout the state during the Spring. Click here to find a rabies clinic near you.
