Article 7 of NYS Agriculture and Markets Law requires that any person who harbors or keeps a dog must obtain a dog license in the town in which they live.  Dogs over the age of 4 months must be licensed. A permanent identification tag is issued at the time of licensing. The dog tag must be worn on the dog's collar at all times.  To obtain a dog license, the following items must be presented in person or by mail at the Town Office:

  • A certificate of rabies vaccination (showing current coverage)
  • A spaying or neutering certificate obtained from a licensed veterinarian (or spayed or neutered must be clearly stated on a currently valid rabies certificate)

To remain current, dog licenses must be renewed annually.  Annual dog license renewal forms are mailed directly to the dog owner by the NYS Dept. of Agriculture and Markets.  License and renewal fees are payable at the Town Clerk's Office.  Please notify the Town Clerk's Office if your address has changed or there is a change in the status of your dog.  Please complete the below form to license your dog, the Town Clerk will use an additional form to complete the transaction.
