How do I license a dog?

Massachusetts State Law requires all dogs age 6 months or older to be rabies vaccinated and licensed annually by the owner or keeper ("keeper" as defined by state law: any person, business, corporation or society, other than the owner, having possession of a dog).

Kingston dog licensing begins on January 1 of every year. Dog licenses can be obtained by bringing a copy of the dog's current rabies certificate to the Town Clerk's office during regular business hours. Licensing fee for a spayed/neutered dog is $10 or $20 for an unaltered dog.
