New York State Law requires that all dogs, six months of age and older, be licensed each year at your local Town Clerk's Office. A licensed dog has a much better chance of being returned to its owner should it become lost. Also, in the case of dog bites to humans, a dog license helps emergency personnel quickly determine if a dog has been vaccinated against rabies. Proof of rabies vaccination is required at the time of licensing. Failure to obtain a dog license may result in a fine of $25.00 n o w OPEN with Remodeled Lounge Open 10 A.M. to ?
