All dogs in New York State require a license. Proof of a rabies vaccination from a veterinarian is required along with a certificate of spay or neutering. The rabies certificate must contain the date the shot was given and the expiration. For dogs that are unable to receive a rabies shot, a Certificate of Exemption from Rabies Vaccination MUST be completed by the attending veterinarian and the dog owner.
Dogs over the age of four (4) months must be licensed, per this application form. Dog licenses must be renewed every year according to the fees in this document.
