Late Fees Now Being Assessed for Dog License Renewals
All dog license renewals coming in after March 1 will receive a late fee of $5 per month.
This was provided by the Town Clerk’s Office.
State law requires that all dogs be licensed annually. The Town Clerk’s office has licensed over 1900 dogs so far for 2013. Many dogs belonging to Andover residents still remain to be licensed for this year.
If your dog has not been licensed please come into the Town Clerk’s office from 8:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. Monday through Friday. You may also register through the mail by sending a check payable to the Town of Andover, a current certificate of rabies vaccination, and proof of spay or neuter to the Town Clerk’s Office, 36 Bartlet Street, Andover, MA 01810.
Dog license renewals received on or after March 1 will be charged a cumulative monthly administrative fee of $5 per month. The underlying renewal fee is $14 for intact dogs and $13 for spayed or neutered dogs with proof from a veterinarian. Do not assume that the Town has your dog’s spay or neuter information on file as this information is now required under a recent change in state law.If you have any questions, please call the Town Clerk’s office at (978) 623-8255.
