Dog License

The Columbia County Clerk Office serves as a distribution center for the dog licenses sold in Columbia County.

WHERE TO APPLY: Dog licenses are sold by local municipal treasurers, who receive forms from and reconcile sales records with the County Clerk Office. Please contact your local treasurer with inquiries as to license purchases.

DOCUMENTATION NEEDED: Written verification that the dog being licensed is current with its rabies vaccinations.

COST: The fee is $3.00 per neutered dog, whether male or female, and $8.00 per dog if it has not been neutered.

LOST DOGS: To verify ownership of a stray dog which has a Columbia County dog license tag, contact the local treasurer if it is before November of the year. If the dog is discovered in December or has a prior year’s tag, contact the County Clerk Office. Records are maintained to identify the owners of dogs with tags.
