What to Know About Dogs?

Syracuse is a dog-friendly city. We do our best to promote pet licensing, adoption, and safety. The city supports thousands of licensed dogs and responsible owners who care for their dogs. For public safety and animal safety, the City does have ordinances (laws) in place that govern how dogs are managed. Please view the City of Syracuse's Frequently Asked Questions before contacting 911.

The City partners with various community groups and supports healthy, humane, and progressive services for dogs through various channels. Learn more about common questions and resources for dog owners.
