A Dog Control Officer designated by the Town Board, as provided in § 114 of the Agriculture and Markets Law, may enforce the provisions of the town code and may also investigate and report to the Town Justice any dangerous dog, as described in § 121 of the Agriculture and Markets law, and see that the order or orders of the Town Justice in such case are carried out.
According to Town of Wilton Chapter 53-6, all dogs 4 months of age or older must be licensed. To obtain a license for your dog, see the Wilton Town Clerk at the Town Hall on Traver Road. Proof of rabies immunization is required to be presented at the time of licensing or the renewal of an existing license.. A spay or neuter certificate will reduce the fee. A silver tag with an identification number will be issued at the time of licensing. This tag as well as the rabies tag must be worn on your dog's collar at all times. It is also recommended that a personal ID tag with a phone number also be worn for easy identification should your animal be lost.
The full dog control law for the Town of Wilton can be found in Chapter 53 of the Wilton Town Code.
To report suspected animal abuse, please call the SPCA of Upstate at (518) 798-3500 or any law enforcement agency.
