It's time to license your dog!

Town and state laws require that all dogs be licensed each year.  Dog licenses are sold by the Town Clerk’s office in person, by mail, or online. Licenses purchased after February 1, 2018 are subject to a $5 late fee. 

The fee for spayed/neutered dogs is $13 per dog; the fee for intact dogs is $15 per dog. 

To purchase a license in person, visit our office on the first floor of the Town Offices at 7 Keady Way; payment can be via cash or check, made payable to the Town of Shirley. If purchasing by mail, please mail a check made out to the Town of Shirley to Town Clerk, 7 Keady Way, Shirley, MA  01464 with a note stating your name, address, and name(s) of dogs to be registered.  If you wish to purchase online, click here then scroll down to “Town Clerk – Dog Licenses, Birth, Marriage, and Death Certificates,” and follow steps as indicated.
