State Law requires that all dogs in the Commonwealth over 6 months of age be licensed annually. Dogs must be licensed by March 31 each year in order to avoid penalty. Dogs not licensed by March 31 each year may be subject to a fine of up to $50 in addition to licensing and late fees.
Rabies Certificate & Related Items
If you have a current rabies certificate on file with the Town Clerk's
Office, then a dog license may now be requested and paid for online from
your checking account or with a credit card (Master Card or Discover
Card only). You will receive your license and tag via mail. Contact the
Town Clerk's Office via email
or telephone 978-318-3080, if you do not know whether your rabies
information is on file. This secure service is made possible through an
agreement with Unibank. A nominal fee will apply to credit card
transactions, while there is no charge to pay directly from your
checking account. Go to the online payment screen. Our provided documents can be mailed in or turned in to our office.
