The City of Biddeford participates in the State of Maine's Dog Licensing Online Purchasing and Renewal Service. Residents of Biddeford may register their dogs online on the State's website or in person at the City Clerk's Office in City Hall. If you wish to license a wolf hybrid or service/search dog, or would like to obtain a kennel license, please visit the City Clerk's office.
To license a dog online you will need the following:
License/Tag number (Renewal only)
State of Maine Rabies certificate
Veterinarian's name and phone number
Spay or Neuter Certificate (If your dog has been fixed)
Licenses for dogs that are neutered or spayed are $6 per year if purchased in person at City Hall, or $7 online. Licenses for dogs that are not neutered or spayed are $11 per year in person or $12 online.
Licenses must be renewed by January of each year. Renewals that take place on February 1 or after will have a $25 fee added to the cost of the license.
By licensing your dog, you are directly supporting the State of Maine's Animal Welfare Program, which fights animal cruelty and abuse. Most people do not realize that up to 90% of their dog license fees go directly to the Maine Animal Welfare Program. Dog license fees account for 95% of the Animal Welfare Program’s entire funding and without these fees, the state would be unable to protect the animals of this state.
