Animal Control

Animal Control responds to all animal complaints (domestic or wild), which includes the humane removal of all animals.  Additionally, the department enforces the Town of Ashfield animal control bylaw. as well as ensuring that dog owners have proper and up to date licenses for their dogs. 

State law requires that all dogs over the age of six months in the Commonwealth be licensed annually.  A proof of current rabies vaccination is required as no license will be issued if a dog does not have proof of rabies vaccination.
