New York State requires all dogs to be licensed annually. Failure to receive a renewal or delinquent notice will not be accepted as an excuse to avoid paying the late fee.
Once the dog reaches 4 months of age or older, the dog owner must license the dog in the Town Clerk's office. To license your dog you must present the following information:
- A copy of the current rabies certificate; and
- Verification from a veterinarian that the dog has been spayed or neuteried (if applicable)
Dog Enumeration every 5 years. Next one will run from January - May 2021.
The Ontario County Humane Society can be reached at (585) 396-4590 or visit their website at www.ontariocountyhumanesociety.org.
