What Happens If I Don’t License My Dog?

Failure to license a dog is a violation of state law and city ordinances. In addition to the annual license fee you will be charged a late fee of $1 per month for each month (or part of a month) after June 1.

In addition, you are subject to a civil forfeiture fee of $32 due within 15 days after receiving notice of forfeiture. If the forfeiture is not paid, the case will be disposed of in Nashua District Court. Any dog off the premises of the owner of the dog without a current registration tag on his collar may be subject to impoundment, a penalty of $32, and to all other penalties and provisions as provided by the Nashua Code of Ordinances (Sections 5-1 through 5-11).
