2015 Dog Licenses Extended through 2016


2015 Dog Licenses Extended through 2016

Dog owners in Bridgewater are reminded that due to the most recent amendment to the Canine Control Enforcement Ordinance, the Dog Licensing Period has changed from a Fiscal Year to a Calendar Year. Licenses now run from January 1st through December 31st. Thus, licenses for dogs registered in 2015 have been extended through December 31, 2016. Renewals will begin on January 1, 2017.

All dogs living in Bridgewater should have red, stop-sign-shaped 2015 dog tags. Residents are welcome to contact the Town Clerk’s Office (508-697-0921) to verify their dogs’ licenses or to ask other questions.
A dog licensing form to register dogs for the calendar year 2017 will be sent to all residents with the 2017 

Annual Town Census in November. The 2017 Dog License costs are:
Male/Female: $20.00
Neutered Male/Spayed Female: $15.00
Late Fee (after March 1, 2017): $10.00

Dogs not registered by March 1st will be charged a fine of $10.00 in addition to the cost of the license as required by the new Canine Control Ordinance.

Licenses may be purchased in person at the Town Clerk’s Office, currently located at 64 Central Square in the Town Hall but which will be relocated to 66 Central Square (the Academy Building) by November. Office hours are Monday through Thursday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Licenses also may be purchased by mailing a request, the proper fee, self-addressed stamped envelope and copy of current rabies certificate to Town Clerk’s Office, 64 (or 66 after the move) Central Square, Bridgewater, MA 02324.

Additionally, licenses may be purchased online through the Town’s Website: www.bridgewaterma.org under QUICK LINKS then ONLINE PAYMENT CENTER.
