Dog licenses for 2013 are available for purchase at the town clerk’s office. Residents must submit a valid rabies certificate and a check for $15 per dog payable to the Town of Ashland. Residents should contact the clerk’s office if they no longer have a dog so that the office can update its records. Dog-license applications were mailed out with the town census and are also available for download on the town’s website at www.ashlandmass.com . Dogs must be licensed by April 1. For more information, call the clerk’s office at 508-881-0100, ext. 601.
