Fee change for dog licenses

Residents have until Feb. 28 to turn in their dog license renewals or they will face an additional $5 surcharge.

Town Clerk Larry Murphy recently issued a bulletin that dog license renewal notices were sent to dog owners on Dec. 9. But fees and renewal requirements have changed.

The fee for spayed or neutered dogs is now $13 with proof from a veterinarian. Intact dogs are $14.

All dogs must have proof of a current rabies vaccination.

Dog owners may renew their dog’s registration in the town clerk’s office from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Renewals are also accepted through the mail by sending a check payable to the Town of Andover along with the required documentation to the clerk’s office at 36 Bartlet St., Andover 01810.

For more information, call the clerk’s office at 978-623-8255 or email

Town census ready for mailing

The annual Town Census will be mailed to residents in early January.

Anyone who is leaving town for an extended period of time and at risk for not receiving the census next month should contact the town clerk’s office at 978-623-8255 so that they will not be dropped from the voter or census rolls.

All registered voters must return the census each year to remain on the voter rolls per state law. Non-registered voters are also required to return the annual census. This information is commonly used to verify a person’s residency for public school admittance, military benefits and in-state tuition reductions. The town census also provides vital information that supports services in the community.
