Dog License Regulations

New York State requires that all dogs 4 months of age or older and resident in the state for more than 30 days be licensed.  These licenses must be renewed yearly.  The law also requires that the dog’s license tag be firmly attached to the dog’s collar or harness and worn at all times.  Licenses must be obtained at the Town Clerk’s office.

The following fee schedule applies:

$10.00 for spayed or neutered dogs

$16.00 for “intact” dogs (dogs which have not been altered)

The following proofs must be presented at the time of licensing:

Current rabies vaccination certificate

Certificate of spay/neuter when applicable for the lower cost license.

Senior citizens are eligible for discounted license fees. Please check with the Town Clerk’s office about this program.
