For emergencies call 413-527-1212
As an Animal Control Officer, the challenges one encounters can be both exciting and sometimes frustrating. To me, the hardest part of the job is notifying the family of an injured or deceased pet. I encourage residents to use leashes and tie outs. Your full cooperation will help in reducing these sad events.
State law requires that all dogs and cats shall be vaccinated against rabies. State law also requires all dogs to be licensed each year. Licenses shall be attached to the dog's collar or suitable harness, and worn by the dog.
This also serves as a return tag if the dog does become accidentally separated from its home. To get a new license, or to renew a license, please visit the City Clerk at 50 Payson Avenue.
