New York State and the Long Island townships require that every dog 6 months old or older that is owned or harbored for more than 30 days must be registered with a license. Dog owners can apply for NY dog licenses at their local town clerk’s office. Owners must have proof of their NY pet’s rabies vaccination, as well as the location that their pet was spayed or neutered.
In Oyster Bay, including Hicksville, dog owners can register their dogs at one of following town clerk offices:
54 Audrey Avenue
Oyster Bay, NY 11771
977 Hicksville Road
Massapequa, NY 11758
Each town in Nassau County has their own dog leash laws. While all require that dogs be leashed at all times and under the owners’ control when out in public, some have additional specifications, such as allowable leash length and acceptable public behavior.
We strongly encourage all pet owners to familiarize themselves with the state, county, and town regulations that govern dog ownership. For more information about the laws affecting you, please contact your local town clerk’s office:
