How do I license my dog?

To license your dog, you need to print out and fill in the East Hampton Town Dog License Application or obtain an application from the Town Clerk’s office. Submit application along with a valid copy of your dog’s current rabies vaccination certificate and the license fee ($12.50 for altered dogs or $20.50 for unaltered dogs). The license does need to be renewed yearly, notices for renewal are sent out approximately 30 days prior to the license expiration date by the Town Clerk’s Office. East Hampton Town Code requires all dogs 4 months of age and old to be licensed (East Hampton Town Code, Chapter 86 Section 5A(1). Once licensed, each dog receives a license tag, such tag must be affixed to the dog’s collar at all times as per New York State Agriculture and Markets.
