New York State Law requires all dogs to be licensed at the age of four months by the municipality in which the dog lives.
Licensing your dogs provides us with a way of making sure your pet is returned to you if he wanders off; and also with a way to reassure your neighbor that your dog has been vaccinated against rabies if an unpleasant incident occurs and you are unavailable. Sometimes, there's a case of mistaken identity, and we can confirm the ownership of a pet who enjoys exploring.
NOTE: There is no leash law in the Town of Spafford.
In 2014 the NYS DEC retired "combination" licenses (such as the Sportsman license) except for Lifetime Licenses.
