Dog Licenses
New York State requires that all dogs over the age of 4 months be licensed.  The Town Clerk’s office issues dog licenses under the authority of the New York

State Department of Agriculture and Markets. To obtain or renew a license, the owner must provide the following Veterinary documentation:

  1. Proof of Current Rabies Vaccination
  2. Proof of dog having been spayed or neutered if the dog has been spayed or neutered.

Dog licenses must be renewed on a yearly basis. Renewal notices will be sent out; late fees are applied. If you move or no longer have the dog, please contact the Town Clerk’s office to have the dog’s information be updated.

Fees may be paid by cash or check. Fees: Spayed or Neutered, $11.00; Not Spayed or Not Neutered, $18.00. If your dog goes missing, being registered with the Town may just help find it!

Here’s a helpful brochure about rabies.
