Vote 2016

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.

From Bob_Brandt_500

Bob Brandt reports a large number of

these critters around town.
