What happens if I don't license my dog?

Failure to license your dog is a violation of State law. Owners who fail to register their dog by May 1st will be subject to fines and a court summons.

Late charges are assessed at $1 per month, per dog. Civil forfeiture fines will also be assessed in the amount of $25 per dog, which will be payable within 15 days of receipt of the notice of failure to register. Failure to pay late charges and civil forfeiture fees within the 15-day period will result in a summons to appear in court.
