Dog Licenses and the Leash Law

State Law and Town Bylaw require dogs to be licensed each year.  The licensing period is from April 1st  through March 31st each year. A current Rabies Certificate is required, stating the date of expiration.  Proof of neutering or spaying must be provided. All dogs six (6) months of age or older must be licensed.

You can license or renew your license two ways:

  • There will be a $10.00 late fee for EACH DOG not licensed before July 1st each year.

The General Bylaws of the Town of Conway requires the restraint of any dog within the Town of Conway by a chain or leash not exceeding eight feet in length, unless such dog is on the premises of the owner or keeper, or upon the premises of another person with permission of such other person.   (Adopted – May 1974)    If any dog owner or keeper is found to be out of compliance with the dog leash law, a fine of no more than $20.00 shall be assessed in accordance with this Bylaw for the first offense, and $50.00 per offense thereafter.
