To obtain a dog license, contact the town of Cazenovia office, located at 7 Albany St. by calling 655-9213. After filling out a form and paying a small fee ($25 for unsprayed/unneutered, $18 for spayed/neutered), dog owners are given a tag declaring their animal is up-to-date on vaccinations. This tag must be on the dog at all times, according to New York state law.
If an incident with an aggressive animal does occur, it is important to report the event immediately with either the Cazenovia Dog Control Officer at 569-4152, or the Cazenovia Police Department at 655-3276.
