Dog Licenses Required In Hopkinton:

The Town of Hopkinton requires each dog to be licensed yearly. Licenses are due May 1st. Once your dog has been licensed within the town a renewal will be mailed to you each April. 

Proof of a current rabies vaccine is all that is required to license your pet. Cats need not be licensed, however they do require by Rhode Island State Law, to be vaccinated for the rabies virus. The cost of a license is currently $6.00. There is a $10.00 late fee which would bring the total to $16.00. If your dog is in violation you could face a fine which will increase each time you are found to be in violation.

A portion of the license fee goes to the local shelter. If a dog became lost, wearing its license I.D. tag would greatly aid in reuniting it with the owner.
