In accordance with the provisions of Section 137 of Chapter 140 of the General Laws, all dogs housed within the Town of Becket must be registered.
In order to license your dog(s) we will need:
· A copy of a valid rabies certificate & certificate of spaying/neutering.
· A fee of $11 per dog if your dog has not been spayed or neutered.
· A fee of $5 per dog for a spayed or neutered dog.
· If renewing by mail, a Dog License Renewal form filled out with your dog’s information.
Please complete the Dog License Renewal form and include your payment and a self-addressed stamped envelope. Checks should be made payable to the Town of Becket. Mail to:
Town of Becket
557 Main St.
Becket, MA 01223
We will mail the tag(s) back to you as soon as possible.
If it is more convenient for you, please feel free to stop by the Town Clerk’s Office during normal business hours to obtain your dog license.
Dog licenses are valid for one year (April 1 to March 31).
Licenses must be renewed by April 15 to avoid a late fee.
A late fee of $5.00 per dog will be charged for late renewals after April 15.
A late fee of $10.00 per dog will be charged for late renewals after June 15.
If you no longer own a dog that you had licensed in the previous year, please notify the Town Clerk's Office (413-623-8934) so that we can update our records.
