- Animal Control
To report an animal control problem, call the Police Station at 781-862-1212.
Do not hesitate to make a report because the animal is yours or a friend's or relative's. Pets, including dogs, will not be taken away from their owners because of such a report, under normal circumstances.
If your pet becomes lost, don't give up. How carefully you search and how persistent and resourceful you are can determine whether or not your pet will be found.
Few things in life are as annoying as having to listen to the constant bark, howl, whine or cry of another person’s dog.
Restraint & the Law
The Town by-laws require that dogs be under "restraint and control" at all times.
Scoop the Poop
Don't dispose of dog waste on or in a storm drain or catch basin. These drain directly into wetland areas and streams, affecting wildlife, vegetation, and—potentially—drinking water.
Spaying & Neutering
Learn why you should have your pet spayed or neutered.
Massachusetts State Law requires that all dogs and cats over six months of age must be vaccinated against rabies.
Licensing Your Dog
The Town Clerk acts as the Town's chief election official, recording officer, registrar of vital statistics, public records officer, and licensing officer.
