       The license fee for a spayed/neutered dog is $10.00.
The license fee for a dog that is not altered is  $20.00.
Late fees are $5.00 per month per dog and begin the day after the expiration date of the license.

Please renew promptly.  If you are found with an unlicensed dog at the time of a dog enumeration, you will be fined an additional $5.00 per Town Ordinance.
Licensing is simple and quick.  Proof of rabies is required as well as a spay/neuter certificate, if applicable.  Renewals can be done by mail. Just call or email for further information.

The position of Dog Control Officer for the Town of Lapeer is contracted with the Cortland County SPCA, located at 879 McLean Rd, Cortland, NY.  Dog licensing remains with the Town Clerk but issues involving dangerous, disruptive, abandoned, injured, running-at-large, or unlicensed dogs should be addressed to the SPCA at 753-9386.
