  • Dog control handles all local town dog law issues such

as nuisance barking andArticle 7 of NYS Ag & Market laws

which include dogs at large, dangerous dogs or other related


  • All dogs 4 months and older are mandated to be rabies

vaccinated ( unless exempt ) and licensed. License tag must

be on the dog. It will also ensure a prompt return if lost and

picked up by me. Feel free to contact me with questions

regarding any other animal issues. I may be able to help.

Must I license my dog and how can I do so?
     All dogs in New York State, at least four months of age,

must be licensed. Since Sullivan County has been declared

a “rabies-county,” a dog license cannot be issued without

proof the dog has an up-to-date rabies vaccination. Tags

are not acceptable; you must have the paper certificate. 

The fee is $20.00 for dogs not spayed/neutered, and $10.00

for dogs that are. Proof of spaying/neutering must be

submitted to the Clerk's office before the discount can be

given. Licenses can be purchased for one, two or three

years and must coincide with the rabies expiration date.
