All dogs 6 months of age or older must be licensed with the Town Clerk’s Office (MGL Chapter 137). Please submit rabies vaccination and spay/neuter certificates for verification. All documents will be returned to you with the dog license and tag. Dog Licenses are valid for a calendar year and must be renewed each year in January. The deadline is March 1, after which time fines will be due.
Residents over age 70 may be eligible for a free dog license. In order to qualify for this, the owner must come to the Clerk’s Office with current identification and proof of age.
Failure to renew a dog license within thirty days of the required time shall be punishable by a fine of $25.00. An additional $25.00 will be assessed for each month thereafter. Failure to license a dog shall be punishable by a fine of $100.00 (Town of Natick By-Laws, Article #50, Sec. 16-7).
