Dog Licenses

Apply / Renew Online (Starts Jan 1)

All owners are encouraged to apply and/or renew dog licenses online through the Viewpoint system.

    • Renewals begin January 1 and licenses must be renewed by April 1 to avoid a late fine of $50.
    • Each licensed dog requires a separate application, however these should be submitted under a single ViewPoint Cloud household account.
    • Payments can be made online with a credit card (with a small processing fee) or you can pay by cash or check made out to the Town of Wellesley and mailed to the Town Clerk's Office with a stamped self-addressed envelope.
