Annual Fees are as follows:

  • The fee for a spayed or neutered dog is $6.


Please remember to provide current proof of rabies vaccination by supplying the Sumner Town Office with a copy of your dog’s rabies certificate.

It is important that we vaccinate our pets against rabies. Even if your pet is strictly an indoor pet, vaccines are beneficial in case your pet gets out and comes in contact with wildlife. Vaccines can help to prevent the spread of this disease.


**A $25.00 PER DOG LATE FEE WILL BE CHARGED BEGINNING FEBRUARY 1st**
