Attention Dog Owners
The Town of Henrietta will be conducting a DOG ENUMERATION, also referred to as a DOG CENSUS, through November 30, 2014. Please note that an Animal Control Officer (or an authorized Town representative) will be going "door to door" to verify compliance with Town and State Dog Licensing Laws. You will simply be asked if you have any dogs and if so, are they currently licensed. The Animal Control Officer (or an authorized Town representative) will then verify this information with Town records. If your dog(s) are not in compliance at that time you will be given an opportunity to license your dog(s), subject to any additional fines.
New York State Agriculture and Markets Law, Article 7, requires all dogs to be licensed at four months of age. Once licensed, you will receive a friendly reminder to renew your license once a year. Please bring the following documentation to the Town Hall:
- Written proof of rabies vaccination (must indicate the vaccination date)
- Written proof of Spaying / Neutering (if applicable)
- Applicable Annual Fee ($9 if spayed/neutered, $18 if not)
If your dog(s) are not licensed, please drop by the Town Hall, Town Clerk's Department, 475 Calkins Road, by September 19, 2014 to comply with Town and State Laws.
Please note that additional fines may be imposed once the dog enumeration process starts for any and all unlicensed dogs.
Please note that we've extended the deadline to help you take advantage of our free rabies clinic on September 10th from 4:00pm - 6:00pm.
For additional information, please contact the Town Clerk's Department at 334-7700 or the Animal Control Office at 359-7009
