2015 Dog License Renewals & Late Fees

If your dog has not yet been licensed, please come into the Town Clerk’s office from 8:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M., Monday through Friday. 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.

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. If you have any questions, please call the Town Clerk’s office at (978) 623-8255.
