Dog licenses running out

Buxton Town Clerk John Myers has reminded pet owners that state law requires all dogs six months and older to be licensed by Saturday, Jan. 31.

To license a dog, an owner will need a valid Maine rabies certificate and altering certificate, if appropriate. You can get the dog license in person at the Buxton Town Hall, or by mail to the Town Hall, 185 Portland Road, Buxton, Maine, 04093, or online at

If licensed online an additional fee of $1 is charged per dog license. Online licensing is available until midnight on Jan. 31. Altered dog licenses are $6 and non-altered dog licenses are $11 at the town hall until Feb. 1

Any dog licensed after Jan. 31 will be charged an additional $25 state law late fee per dog.

“If you receive a notice from the Buxton Animal Control Officer for an unlicensed dog there will be a second $25 fee added for the first violation, $50 for the second and $100 for the third violation within three years,” Myers said in a statement. “If you are summonsed to court for an unlicensed dog the fees will increase again, exceeding $100 per dog.
