  Five Reasons to License Your Dog Each Year

1.  Get reunited FASTER

  • When we find a lost family member with their license tags, we know exactly who to call!
2. Current license  =  current vaccines
  • When everyone does their part to keep pets properly vaccinated, it keeps Rabies, Distemper, Parvo, and other viruses from spreading throughout the pet population.
3.  It’s cheap
  •  Intact dogs: $20
  •  Altered dogs: $10
  •  Pet owners over the age of 70 are exempt from licensing fees
4. It’s easy
  • There are three ways to purchase! Online, in person, or by mail. Head over to the City Clerks' website to find instructions. Note: online renewal is a two-step process. 
  • Call our ACOs at 413-587-1295 if you have questions, we’re happy to help.
5.  Fees help local pets
  • Pet license revenue helps us build our Pet Food Bank, care for animals until they’re reunited or adopted, and helps our ACOs serve our community.
