It has come to my attention that some dog owners are not aware of the NYS Ag and Markets laws regarding ownership and licensing of any and all dogs you own. According to my rabies clinic records
this past June there are several unlicensed dogs in our town who have been vaccinated against rabies but not licensed. If you recently moved to a different township it is your responsibility to re-register in your new township.
Under Article 7 § 118 of the NYS AG & Markets Law you are required by the State of New York to license your dog(s) with the Town Clerk of the town you reside in according to Town Local Law #2-2010 and that the dog(s) has a current rabies vaccination. The purpose of Article 7 and the Local Law is to provide for the licensing and identification of dogs, the control and protection of the dog population and the protection of persons, property, domestic animals and deer from dog attack and damage. The responsibility is on the owner and if not in compliance the Town Dog Control Officer is required to give notice and warning to owners and if not acted upon by the owner this will result in receipt of a ticket and answerable in Town Court. Owner will be responsible for any and all fines incurred as a result and will be required to comply with NYS Ag & Markets Law and Town Law and get the animal vaccinated and licensed immediately. The fees for licensing dogs in the Town of Clifton are: Spayed/Neutered $5.50, Unaltered $13.50.
If you own/harbor a dog(s) of 4 months of age or older please take it upon yourself to get them vaccinated against rabies and licensed now. It’s the Law!! Given the occurrences of rabid animals on the increase we need to be responsible owners to protect our pets, children and the general public from harm. In order to license your dog I need to have provided a current rabies certificate, if altered a certificate of spay/neuter from your vet, and the name, breed, color, gender and date of birth.
In addition I would like to mention that if your dog is deceased, moved to another township, or been given away you notify me at the office (315) 848-2915 and return the license tag so that I can make the necessary changes to my records and prevent unnecessary reminders being sent to you.
