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.
