Licenses must be renewed on an annual basis - one year from the month the original license was purchased. License renewal forms will be mailed directly to the dog owner by the Elmira City Clerk's Office by the first day of the month that your license is due to expire. Renewals can be completed through the mail. The owner must sign the renewal application, return the two parts of the license, and the required fee. The City Clerk will process the license and mail your receipt copy back to you. Proof of rabies vaccine must be presented if the vaccine has expired since the last time you licensed your dog.
If you move into or out of the City or if the dog is transferred to a new owner or becomes deceased, please contact us at (607) 737-5672 or by clicking to send email so we can make changes to the Dog License.
