COVID-19 UPDATE

Notice from the Haddam Town Clerk’s Office

June 15th UPDATE:

Some residents may have noticed "Town of Sprague" on the back of our dog license reminder postcards. This is a misprint due to a programming error with our printer. Please remit any checks or paperwork to the "Town of Haddam" 30 Field Park Drive, Haddam 06438.  We apologize for any confusion.


 

Due to these unprecedented times we urge all residents to renew both their dog licenses and transfer station passes by mail. It is the safest and most efficient way to conduct your business and should save everyone considerable time from standing in a long line observing social distancing. Please mail in copies of all required paperwork (ie: car registration, rabies certificate etc.) Your check should be made payable to the Town of Haddam. In previous years as a courtesy our office has called the veterinary’s office for those residents who arrived at town hall without proper paperwork for their dog. Due to current circumstances we are unable to provide that service this year. You can check with us by email or phone prior to your visit and we can check our records to see if your pets’ information is up to date.

We process 2400 transfer station passes per year and license approximately 950 dogs. Most everyone has stood in line at our counter to make a purchase of one or both of these items. Reduced hours can only make the lines longer. Please make every effort to renew by mail, it is definitely the right decision until we can get things as close to back to normal as possible.

Our number 1 dog contest which has proven to be very popular will be held again this year. All dogs licensed in town during the month of June are eligible to win. As an added incentive any dog owners who register by mail will receive two entries to the drawing.

DOG LICENSE RENEWAL

DOG LICENSE renewal is due in June. Please come in and register your dog so that you have the current tag. Our Animal Control Officer will be contacting you, if you are delinquent.

Fees: A neutered or spayed dog $8.00 - An unneutered or unspayed dog $19.00 Kennel License is $51.00 Beginning August 1 , (due to COVID-19) a penalty fee will be charged for every month a resident is late in registering a dog. Licenses Renewal requests can be mailed with proof of current rabies vaccination and a spaying/neutered certificate (if not on file) to the Town Clerk at 30 Field Park Drive, Haddam, CT 06438, along with your fee, and a self-addressed stamped envelope. If you no longer have your dog, please let us know so that we may update our records. If you have any questions or concerns regarding licensing your dog(s) please call (860-345-8531 x 211 or 212) or email our office.
