BANGOR, Maine — Bangor residents should plan to register their dogs by Jan. 31 to avoid paying a $25 late fee, according to City Clerk Lisa Goodwin.

After that, owners will be assessed the fee. It costs $6 to license a dog that has been spayed or neutered and $11 for a dog that can still reproduce.

Residents may license their dogs by coming to city hall during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or online at

There’s an additional $1 charge for online licenses.
