All 2018 dog licenses expired 12/31/2018 and are now past due. Only 50% of Bar Harbor's 830 dogs have been registered so far for 2019. Avoid the State imposed $25 late fee per dog and register today.
You can register your dog(s) one of three ways:1. Visit the Town Clerk's office with the dog's rabies vaccination certificate, M-F 8:30am-5:00pm2. Mail a copy of the dog's rabies vaccination certificate and payment to 93 Cottage St, Bar Harbor, ME 04609. Make checks payable to "Town of Bar Harbor".3. Register online here.
License fees: Spayed/Neutered is $6.00, Unaltered is $11.00.
Pursuant to Title 7, §3922 of the Maine Revised Statutes Annotated, any dog 6 months of age or older is required to be licensed. The State provides a grace period, the month of January, before imposing a late fee of $25.00 per dog (7 MRSA, §3923) in addition to the license fee. Because this is a State mandate, all dog owners who have not licensed their dog(s) by February 1, 2019 in accordance with 7 MRSA §3922, will now be referred to the Bar Harbor Police Department for enforcement, prosecution under 7 MRSA, §3924, that states it is a civil violation for which a forfeiture not to exceed $100.00 may be adjudged. In addition to the $100.00 fine, the Town/State will collect the dog license fee and late fee.
If you no longer own your dog(s), please call the Town Clerk at 207-288-4098 so we may update our records.
Your prompt attention to this matter is appreciated.
