Dog Licenses

Dog licenses and tags are available beginning March 1st of each year in the City Clerk's Office, City Hall, 25 West Street, from 8:30 am to 4 pm, Monday through Friday, and until 5:30 pm on Thursday.

Licensing fees are $15 for male and female dogs and $10 for neutered male dogs and spayed female dogs. A late fee of $10 for each year in addition to the yearly license fee per year will be charged for all dogs not licensed by May 1st of any year.

A Certificate of neutering or spaying of dogs not previously licensed must be shown in order to receive the reduced rate. Owners renewing dog licenses must show updated rabies certificates if the previous certificate has expired.

Dog licensing may be done by mail by forwarding the appropriate fee, a self-addressed stamped envelope and the rabies certificate. The certificate will be returned by mail along with the new license and tag.

Owners of dogs are reminded that, according to state law, all dogs, including housedogs, must be licensed.

The City of Leominster has a dog ordinance which includes a leash law.
