Dog Control Officer – Laura Holt

Phone – (315) 696-6468



In the Town of Tully, the Dog Control Officer is Laura Holt, 696-6468. Every licensing town, city or village must have a Dog Control Officer (DCO) and municipal shelter services. The DCO and shelter service enforces both State and any local dog laws and ordinances. Further, it is the DCO’s responsibility to pick up lost and stray dogs and humanely care for them until they can be reunited with their owners. If your dog is lost, or you find a lost dog, immediately contact your local DCO or shelter. Owners should seek lost, unidentified dogs at the municipal shelter. If a dog is lost but identified with a Town of Tully identification tag, the DCO will contact the Town Clerk to trace the dog tag to the owner. The local dog control officer must institute action for violations of both state and local laws. Fines or civil penalties shall be up to $25 for the first offense, $50 for the second, and $100 for the third and subsequent offenses. If dogs injure or kill livestock, the local assessor should be notified immediately. Do NOT destroy or bury the animals. They must be available for examination so the assessor can appraise the damage.
