Dog Licenses & Control


Dog Licenses are renewed annually in the month they were orignally applied for. The costs are as follows:

New or Renewal License

Spayed/neutered = $10.00
Non-spayed/neutered = $20.00
Replacement Tag = $3.00

Puppies must be licensed from the time they are 4 months old. Owners must provide an initial proof of rabies vaccination and then booster certifications every three years thereafter, as well as initial proof of spaying/neutering for each licensed dog.

A one-time dog tag is issued at the time of licensing. If the tag is lost a replacement tag may be purchased at a cost of $3.00.

The local Dog Control Officer is David DeYoung. Dave can be reached at all times at (716) 574-0488.
