A dog license is required for each dog you own or keep that is six months or older. In the Town of Falmouth a dog license is issued in relation to the expiration of the dog's rabies vaccination. A rabies certificate, which includes current rabies tag number and expiration date, is required.

If your dog is lost you can be contacted quickly. Both the Dog Officer and the police have current dog lists, which help them contact owners in the event of a problem. The license also shows that the dog has had it rabies shot. This is for the benefit of the dog officer when he is handling a lost or injured dog.
Business Certificates "DBA"
$40 for 4 years
Any person, whether individually, a partnership, or a corporation conducting business under any name other than the complete name of the person or corporation conducting the business, must file with the Town Clerk’s Office a Business Certificate (also referred to as a "DBA" certificate). (M.G.L. c.110, s.5)

A business certificate does not give you permission to operate a business, it only registers the name. It is your responsibility to obtain all the necessary licenses and/or permits required by the town.

The fee for a Business Certificate is $40 and is good for four years.
