Dog licenses can now be renewed online. Dog owners have three ways the license can be renewed: the owner’s name, dog license number, or the dog’s name. There will be a convenience fee of $1.75 per transaction, not per dog license, added to the license fee amount. Transactions over $64 incur a transaction fee of 2.75 percent.
Online licensing is not permitted if the rabies tag has expired or will expire within the month. Fax rabies vaccination certificates to (585) 535-0216 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Renewals can be done at anytime by visiting https://clerk.nyquickpay.com/dogs.php?req=start.
Additionally, the Town Clerk’s Office now accepts credit card payments for all licenses. Transaction fees apply.
The Town of Sheldon is requesting applications for a youth recreation director/leader. If interested, send your resume to the Sheldon Town Clerk via email or mail to 1380 Centerline Road, Strykersville, by April 18.
