Dog licenses expired 4-30. If you haven't renewed, please take
care of this as soon as possible! The main reason dogs are
licensed in Unadilla is so that their owners keep their shots
current. In the event of a dog getting away from home, the
Village knows where to return it from the dog tag. It is a
comfort to others to know if the dog would bite, it has had
its rabies shot.
Bob Brandt reports a large number of
these critters around town.
