The Town of Delhi Clerk’s office would like to remind residents of the Town and Village of Delhi that Article 7 of the New York State Agriculture and Market Law requires that all dogs older than 4 months be licensed. Licensing ensures that all dogs have been properly vaccinated against rabies for the protection of both you and your neighbors. If your dog is spayed/ neutered the fee is $6.00 per year. If the dog is not spayed/neutered the fee is $15.00 per year.
If your dog is unlicensed and/or is caught running at large the dog is subject to seizure and you are subject to a court appearance and a fine, as well as redemption fees from the shelter. Failure to license your dog may subject you to an appearance ticket to the town court and a fine.
Please remember the Village of Delhi has the following local law: Local Law 2-2004 §106-2 – Restrictions which states all dogs shall be restrained upon a leash while off the owner’s property…
Contact the Delhi Town Clerk at 607-746-2172 or 607-746-3737 to get further information on licensing your dog. You will need a current rabies certificate and proof of spayed/neuter from your vet if applicable. Please note that the office is open Monday through Friday 8:00am – 3:00pm.
