One of the Governor's executive orders at the start of this public health emergency extended the start date for imposing a late fee on pet owners obtaining a dog license. Ridgefield Office of Emergency Management says the late fees normally start on July 1st, but they now won't be charged until August 1st. Before the renewal date, dog owners are asked to confirm that the rabies vaccine is up to date. Vaccinations are usually good for three years, after an initial one-year shot. Beginning June 1st, dog license renewals can be done online, through the Town of Ridgefield website.
