Where does the revenue from annual dog license fees go?

 

According to the 2011 Town of Dover Dog Enumeration project, there are approximately

1000 dogs that live with their owners in the Town of Dover.   Revenue from new dog licenses and

annual renewals help maintain the Town’s dog shelter and defrays the cost of a part-time

Dog Control Officer who helps residents recover lost dogs, rescues abused and

abandoned dogs, and protects the public from dangerous dogs.
