New York State law requires all dogs over the age of four months to be licensed. Here are some reasons to license your dog (besides, of course, it being the law):
- Licensing prevents the spread of rabies: all licensed dogs must show proof of inoculation against rabies.
- Easy pet identification: simply provide the license tag number to the Police Dept. or Village Clerk's Office and the owner's information is readily available.
- Help care for/prevent lost animals: A portion of the license fee goes to support local animal control programs.
Visit the Municipal Building today to license your dog. Please bring a copy of your spay/neuter paperwork (if applicable) and a copy of your dog's most recent rabies vaccination.
