What happens if I don't license my dog?

Failure to license your dog is a violation of State law. In addition to the annual license fee, you will be charged a late fee of $1 per month, per dog for each month (or part of the month) after June 1st. A civil forfeiture fee may also be assessed in the amount of $25, which is payable within fifteen (15) days of the notice of failure to register dog(s). If the forfeiture fee is not paid within that time, a summons to appear in court may be issued in accordance with State law requirements.

Refer to NH RSA 466:13 for State law.
