Attention Dog Owners
2011 DOG LICENSING FEES:
- Spayed/Neutered - $3.50 per year
- Unspayed/Unneutered - $13.50 per year
Senior Citizen Licenses:
- Spayed/Neutered - $1.00 per year

Replacement Tags: $3.00 per tag
The Town of Lumberland will now be issuing with every new dog license and dog license renewal a new Town of Lumberland dog tag that will take the place of any existing New York State Ag & Markets tag. Please discard your old tag once you have received a new one from the Town. Your license information will be filed in the Town Clerk's Office under the new Town of Lumberland dog tag number.
We are making every effort to make the transition as simple as possible. The changes to the previous system include the new tags and the new fees. We have only raised the license fees by the amount mandated by New York State. The Town has also made the decision to only charge senior citizens the mandated state fees and exempting them from the local fee.
