Dog owners have until Thursday to get their pets licensed or face a $25 penalty. The state requires all dogs to be registered, every year, by December 31st. Owners are given a one-month grace period. That time runs out Thursday. After that you’ll have to pay a 25-dollar late fee, on top of 6-dollars for a spayed or neutered dog or 11-dollars for one that’s not. Contact your local city or town office to find out how to register your pet.
