The license period is January 1st through December 31st. All dogs over 6 months old need to be licensed by March 31st every year. The cost is $15 for a neutered male or spayed female and $20 for an unaltered dog of either gender. For residents who are 70 years of age or older there is no fee but they are still required to license their dog(s) and the late fee can apply if unlicensed.
After March 31st a $25 late fee is added for unlicensed dogs. Dogs new to Carlisle must be licensed within a month of moving to Carlisle to avoid the late fee.
