Dog License Reminder
Massachusetts General Law 137 states "the owner or keeper of a dog over the age of 6 months shall obtain a license for the dog." An annual reminder was included with the Census/Street List mailing 

Obtaining a dog license is easy, you may submit a request and payment online, by mail, or via the drop box at Town Hall

To purchase your dog license:

  1. Payment - $15 spay/neutered or $20 intact
    1. Online - ACH or credit/debit card
      Check - payable to Town of Northborough

After you submit the request and payment, the license and tag will be mailed to you.  Please be aware that current processing times are delayed due to Covid-19 impacts in our office.
