Do I have to license my dog in the Town of Lafayette?

Yes, dog licensing is done annually. State law requires all dogs over the age of 5 months to be licensed by April 1st of each calendar year.  A dog license may be obtained at the Town Hall during regular office hours.  A current copy of the dog’s rabies vaccination certificate must be presented at the time the license is applied for.  There is a $ 5.00 late fee after March 31st of each year. To obtain a license by mail, send a completed Dog License application, a copy of the current rabies vaccination cert, a self-addressed stamped envelope, and the correct fee for each dog.   Cats are not required to have a license.
