Dog License Renewals Due
DOG LICENSE RENEWALS DUE
Maisy.jpg

The Town Clerk’s Office reminds residents that March 31 is the last day to obtain a 2011 dog license and tag without incurring a $25 late fee.  Dogs licensed on or after April 1 will be charged the late fee in addition to the $15 license fee.    Licenses are issued on a calendar year basis and are available by mail or in person at the Town Clerk’s Office, or online on this website. Proof of rabies vaccination is required, although a certificate may be on file at the Town Clerk’s Office if the dog has been licensed in Concord in the past, or if a local veterinarian is used.  If renewing by mail, send the dog’s name, breed, color, age, and owner’s name, address and phone number, along with rabies certificate, self-addressed stamped envelope, and a check for $15 payable to the Town of Concord.  The mailing address is Town Clerk, P.O. Box 535, Concord, MA 01742.  The Town Clerk’s Office is located on the first floor of the Town House in Concord Center, and is open Mondays through Fridays, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

Licenses will also be available for sale at the free rabies vaccination clinic on Saturday, March 19 from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm at the Public Works Building on Keyes Road.  Please note that although licenses will be available for the entire time, dogs requiring vaccination should be brought only between 1:00 pm and 1:45 pm.  Cats should be brought between 1:45 pm and 2:30 pm.  All dogs must be on a leash and under the control of an adult.  All cats must be in a cat carrier, and the veterinarian on-site reserves the right to NOT administer vaccines to fractious cats (biting or hissing).  These cats will have to be handled in an office visit that is a more controlled environment.  

State law requires all dogs over six months of age to be licensed and tagged.  Dogs that are not licensed by April 1 each year are subject to a fine of up to $50.  The dog officer routinely picks up stray and unlicensed dogs, so please do your dog a favor by buying a license and attaching the tag to the dog’s collar.  Contact the Concord Town Clerk’s Office if you have any questions, or to verify whether a valid rabies vaccination is on file --- townclerk@concordma.gov or 978-318-3080.
