ASHLAND – There will be a rabies clinic on Saturday April 8.

The Clinic will be held at the Ashland Animal Hospital at 10 Fountain Street from 2 to 4 p.m.

Please bring proof of a past Rabies Vaccine for a 3 year shot.

“This is a great opportunity to get a low cost Rabies Vaccine for your pet before the licensing season ends on April 15,” said Town Manager Michael Herbert in his newsletter.

State Law requires that all dog owners license and vaccinate their pet against rabies. This helps control the spread of rabies and keep a complete record of Ashland’s pet population to ensure the safety of the animals as well as the residents of Ashland. You may wish to review Chapter 87 of the Town’s Bylaws for the regulations pertaining to dog licensing.

Dogs must be licensed each year. A license is valid for one calendar year from January 1 to December 31.

The annual license fee per dog is $15 for a spay/neutered dog with proof from a licensed veterinarian and $20 if the dog is intact.

If you are 70 years of age or older, there is no fee to license your individual dog(s).

If you operate a kennel the fee is dependent upon the number of dogs. The fee is not waived for a kennel license. If you do have a kennel, please contact the Animal Control Office at 508-881-0122 for a site visit as an inspection is required before a kennel license may be issued.

First, obtain and completely fill out an Application for Annual Dog License (PDF). Dog license applications are also included with the annual town census. Send or bring in the completed application, a current rabies certificate for each dog to be licensed, and a check or money order for the appropriate amount payable to the Town of Ashland.
