When a veterinarian determines that vaccination is inadvisable, the owner may present a veterinarian's certificate exempting an old or sick dog from vaccination for a stated period of time.
New dogs. Within 30 days of acquiring a dog six months of age or older, each dog owner in Wayland must present proof of that dog's current rabies vaccination and obtain a license and dog tag from theTown Clerk.
New puppies. Within six months of a puppy being born, each dog owner in Wayland must present proof of that puppy's current rabies vaccination and obtain a license and dog tag from the Town Clerk.
New residents. A new resident who owns a dog six months of age or older must license it within 30 days after moving into Wayland. The Town Clerk will issue each dog a transfer license, upon the owner's surrender of a current license from another US jurisdiction and proof of current rabies vaccination. The transfer license is valid until the next regular licensing period.
