Request #18-915

From: [] Sent: Friday, September 14, 2018 12:26 PM To: Cushman, Ellen <> Subject: Massachusetts Public Records Law Request: MA, Belmont Dog Licences


Belmont Town Clerk PRL Office 455 Concord Avenue Belmont, MA 02478

September 14, 2018

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

Any and all available dog licensing and registration data for dogs within your jurisdiction (all dogs actively registered for 2018, I am not seeking historical records)

Please include all available segregable data, including but not limited to:

  • the breed of the dog • the color of the dog • the dog's date of birth • the dog's name • the owner's name • the owner's address and applicable zip code • any other available notes (rabies vaccine status, spay/neuter status, license #)

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment (excel preferred) if available or CD-ROM if not. If your pet licensing is all in one database (cats, dogs) I am happy to receive it all and remove the non dog data on my side to save you time.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.

I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days, as the statute requires.


Brian Olney
