Reminder to all Goffstown residents who own dogs, it is time to register your dogs. If they need a visit to the vet for updated rabies and other vaccinations, please schedule that as soon as possible as it is required to be done before a dog license can be issued.

State of New Hampshire RSA 466:1 requires that every owner or keeper of a dog four months old or older shall annually cause it to be registered, numbered, described, and licensed for one year in the city or town in which the dog is kept. Regardless of when the license is obtained, the license shall be effective from May 1st of each year to April 30th of the subsequent year.


2016-2017 dog licenses expired on April 30th and this is a friendly reminder for you to register those dogs for 2017-2018. Those who fail to register their dogs in a timely fashion are subject to a court summons and a fine for unregistered dogs.
