  • The licensing fee is $19.00 for each unaltered dog or $8.00 for each spayed or neutered dog.  There is a $1.00 per  month late fee assessed for overdue licenses.  Failure to license your dog(s) is punishable by a fine in the amount  of $75.00 per dog.
  • Licenses may be obtained in person at the Ashford Town Clerk’s office during normal business hours.  You may also obtain licenses through the U.S. Postal Service.  Please print the Dog License Application and return it with full payment to the Town Clerk, 5 Town Hall Road, Ashford CT 06278, along with a self-addressed stamped envelope for the return of your dog tags.  Checks must be marked payable to “Town of Ashford”.  Please complete a separate application for each dog you must license.
