Don’t forget to register your dog for 2015 – there are nearly 200 dogs in Hamilton that are still not registered, according to Linda Grimes, the administrative assistant in the Town Clerk’s office.
A late fee of $25 kicks in after June 1.
The regular fees are $15 for a neutered or spayed dog and $20 for a dog that is intact. Residents age 70 and older will not be charged a fee for one dog. For all dogs, you must also show a valid rabies certificate when registering it.
In January, dog owners received a reminder about registering their dog along with the town census in the mail. A follow-up reminder was also sent out in March.
All dogs 6 months or older are required to be registered.
Anyone with questions can call the Town Clerk’s office at 978-468-5570.
