If you live on South Main Street in the village of Poland, and you reside in the Town of Newport (which is from the Community Baptist Church of Poland towards Newport) and you have a dog, your dog needs to have a current license. If you need a current license for your dog(s), please stop down to the Newport Town Barn and we can resolve it. It is a New York State law that all dogs have a current rabies vaccination, and current dog license.


I have met the Village Of Poland Animal Control Officer, Marc Costantine, and he is doing a great job. I am working with him to get licenses for all the village's dogs.


For my office hours, please call 845-8340 as they change from Summer to Winter.
