Dogs: Strays and Impoundments:
Dog Control is responsible for local enforcement of NYS Ag & Markets Law (Article 7) and the Town’s local dog control code. The DCO will respond to such dog control issues as dogs running at large, dangerous dogs and dog bites within 24 hours. When a dog is seized or impounded for violations of the NYS Ag & Markets Law or Town Code, the DCO will file a “Dog Seizure and Disposition” report with the Town Clerk’s Office and will notify and instruct dog owners to pay their dog’s impoundment/housing fees to the Town Clerk at the Town Office, 6 Michigan St, Hudson Falls, NY, and show proof of a valid license and rabies shot prior to release of the dog. The impounded or seized dog will be housed at the Countryside Boarding and Grooming, 270 Queensbury Avenue, Queensbury, NY, (518) 793-7083.

A tag will be issued which, along with the rabies tag, must be worn on your dog’s collar and all times. It is also recommended that a personal ID tag with a phone number also be worn for easy identification should your dog become lost.
