• License fees are due to the Town Clerk no later than the last day in February of each calendar year. If your dog is over 6 months old, it must be licensed in Wrentham. All dogs must be up to date on their rabies vaccinations to be licensed.
  • Be courteous to your neighbors. If your dog is a barker, don't leave him or her out all weekend long to bark from morning to night. It also costs YOU money. Every time a Police Officers is notified by a resident for this type of complaint, it must be investigated by the Police and Animal Control Officer.
  • Pick up after your dog if you walk him/her on other's property.
    Keep your dog leashed or under your control. Wrentham has a leash law. Dogs which run loose off their owner's property are in violation of our leash law. Owners will be cited.
  • Put your dog license tag on your dog. It helps us identify your dog if lost or loose.
  • Wild animals; skunks, fox, coyote, racoon will soon be mating and bearing their young. You may on occasion see these animals out during the day. This does NOT mean they are rabid, but may in fact be foraging for food for their your. DO NOT approach these animals but be aware that day time sightings of wild animals does not mean they are rabid!
  • Clean your grills! The best way to invite wild animals to your door or deck is to leave them some tasty bits of food on your grill. Removal of all food from the grill and area will minimize invitations.
  • Don't leave your dog in a car without proper ventilation. Car interiors can exceed 120 degrees Fahrenheit when it is 75 degrees or above outside.
