Dog Licenses

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 along with your dog license application. 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.

Dog License Fee Exemption
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 $50. Failure to license a dog shall be punishable by a fine of $100 (Town of Natick By-Laws, Article #50, Sec. 16-7).
