JUNE is Dog Licensing Month!

All Annual Dog Licenses Expire on June 30th

Per Connecticut state law, all dogs, six months and older and living in the Town of Branford are required to have a license and rabies vaccination. Licenses expire on June 30th and must be renewed annually.  Please provide proof of current rabies vaccination. Proof of spay/neuter, if applicable, is required only at initial licensing (not necessary for renewals).  Click here for details.


Dogs licensed on-time during the month of June are eligible for a chance at the esteemed Branford Top Dog contest.  The winner is chosen at random and wins the honor of wearing tag #1 for the year, a gift basket of toys and goodies, and a photo op at Town Hall. 

Congratulations to 2020 Top Dog "Lanikai" a two-year old Bolognese owned by Cathy Dziekan!
