Per RSA 466:1, all dogs must be licensed in the town in which they reside between January 1st and April 30th each year in order to avoid the added costs of a Civil Forfeiture, service fee, and late fees, per NH RSA 466:13.
Dogs may be registered in-person at the Town Clerk/Tax Collector’s Office, online or by mail.
To license by mail, send the completed application with the vaccination certificate, spayed/neutered certificate, a check made out to the Town of Chester for the correct amount, and a legal-sized self-addressed stamped envelope.
