Duties and Responsibilities:
The Animal Control Officer (ACO) is appointed by the Board of Selectmen to enforce the town of Princeton's restraint and dog regulations and to respond to incidents where animals are involved.
All calls to the ACO are routed through Princeton Police Dispatch at the number referenced above and every effort is made to respond to your call in a timely manner.

Deadline to license for 2017 is April 30th. All dogs 6 months of age and over must be licensed annually.
If you have 5 dogs or more 6 months or older you must apply for a kennel license. The Animal Control Officer will have to inspect your property prior to the issuance of a license.

Please attach your 2017 license tag on your dog(s) collar. If your dog gets loose or in case of an emergency, contacting you will be more efficient.

Dear Princeton Residents, Businesses, and Visitors,

Never approach stray animals or wildlife. This is due to the possibility that the stray animal or wildlife may have rabies. Rabies can be transmitted through the saliva of infected animals. At this time of year, we are seeing a lot of infant wildlife and they too should never be approached. Please contact Animal Control by dialing 911 if you observe any animal acting sick or strange.

Laura Pease
Animal Control Officer
