2023 Dog Licenses are now available for purchase. As of June 1, there will be a $25 late fee assessed per dog if registration is late.
Please note: All renewals and new dog licenses must be submitted with proof of rabies and spay/neuter.
If this is your first time licensing a “new-to-you” dog when you submit proof of rabies please know that it is important to show the chain of custody for ownership of the dog. As an example, the rabies paperwork should either have your name as owner or the dogs name on the rabies certificate should be the same as your request to license. If you have any questions relating to chain of custody please call our office at 413-772-1555.
You can obtain a dog license one of three ways:
- In person: Dog Licenses may be obtained in person at the City Clerk's Office, Room 104, City Hall, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., other than posted holidays. The application for a dog license can be found here.
- By mail: Please use the request form you can download here. Send your request in writing with proof of rabies and spay/neuter, payment, and a self-addressed, stamped envelope (or add $1 for postage and envelope) to City Clerk's Office, 14 Court Sq., Greenfield, MA 01301.
- Online: You can order your dog's license online here. Online orders will include a processing fee and $1 for postage.
