Dog Licenses Available to Purchase

GREENFIELD – 2024 dog licenses are available to purchase through the City Clerk’s office. The city celebrated its dog license registration period this year by registering police K-9s for the Greenfield Police Department and Franklin County Sheriff’s Office. Here are some important procedures to know before registering your dog:

• All renewals and new dog licenses must be submitted with proof of rabies and spray/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 the chain of custody, please call the City Clerk’s office at 413-772-1555.
• Households with more than three dogs must acquire a kennel license. Please contact the Planning Department to begin this process.
• The cost for each dog license is $10 for spayed/neutered dogs or $15 for unaltered dogs. Checks/money orders should be made payable to the City of Greenfield.
• As of June 1, there will be a $25 late fee assessed per dog if registration is late.
