Beginning Thursday, Sept. 15, 2022, a $50 late fee will be charged on all Dog License registrations. Residents can submit their dog license registration in-person, by mail or by using the drop-box located at the Town Hall parking lot entrance.
Please include cash or a check payable to the Town of Halifax, a completed Dog License Registration form, rabies vaccination certificate(s), and a self-addressed stamped envelope.
Alternatively, residents may process their dog license registration online at (https://www.halifax-ma.org/pay). Online registrations are only valid if the Town Clerk’s Office has a current rabies vaccination certificate on-file.
It is highly recommended to verify that all required materials are on-file before proceeding with a dog license registration online. You can do so by calling (781) 293-7970 or e-mailing ClerksOffice@halifax-ma.org.
