Post image for Dog owners: Time to get a new license for your pet

If you own a dog in Southborough and it’s more than six months old, you need to get a license for it each year. Licenses for the current year expire at the end of March, so now’s the time to get a new one.

A license costs $12 for dogs that are not spayed or neutered, and $8 for dogs that are. If your dog is new to Southborough, you’ll need to provide a copy of the vet certificate showing that your dog has been spayed or neutered. Payment is by cash or check only.

To get a license, stop by the Town Clerk’s office at the Town House. You can also apply by mail. Either way you’ll need to provide a record of your dog’s most-recent rabies vaccination.

After June 1, a $10 late fee, plus penalties, will be charged for each dog not licensed.

For more information, visit the Town Clerk’s website.

Maybe you dog owners could answer a few questions for me…

Is there a by-law about picking up after your dog when they poop?
Is it against the law to collect the dog poop and put it on the dog owners front step?
