Per Rhode Island State Law all dogs over the age of 6 months are required to be licensed. Dog licenses are renewed annually in the month of April. The license is good from May 1 until April 30.

The cost is $8 per license and there is a maximum of 3 dogs per household.

In order to license the dog a current rabies certificate must be presented along with the application. The town sponsors a rabies clinic during the month of April and dogs can be licensed at that time. Watch the local paper for the date. If applying by mail please include a self-addressed stamped envelope.
