Licensing

New York State Law requires all dogs over four months of age to be licensed in the Towns where they reside. Even if you are not the dog owner, if you harbor a dog for more than 30 days, you are required by NYS Law to obtain a license for the dog.

You must apply for the initial license at the Town Clerk’s office, which is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30-8:30pm, and Mondays from 9am to 3pm. The annual fees are $4.50 for spayed/neutered dogs, and $12.50 for intact dogs, plus a one time collar tag fee of $1.00. Annual proof of current Rabies vaccination for all dogs, and one-time proof of spay/neutering for spayed/neutered dogs is required.
