According to the Town of Acushnet By-Laws, all owners are required to license their dog(s) between January 1st and March 31st of each calendar year. If an owner obtains or takes possession of a dog(s) after March 31st, he/she must license their dog(s) within three months of possession. Failure to license will result in a $50.00 citation fee and a late fee of $15.00 for each unlicensed dog.
Failure to vaccinate your animals against rabies will also result in a $100.00 citation fee for each animal. Please remember, State Law requires that you present a valid rabies vaccination certificate of dogs 3 months and older to the Town Clerk prior to licensing.
