2017 Free Rabies Clinics


The Town of Webster in conjunction with Monroe County Health Department are offering a Free Rabies Clinic on Thursday, September 14, 2017 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the Webster Fire Department located at 35 South Avenue in the Village of Webster. 

If your dog or cat has had a rabies vaccine in the past and you bring that current or recently expired rabies certificate, your pet will receive a three year vaccination.  Without the certificate, your pet will be issued a one year vaccine certificate.

Why License Your Dog?

  1. It's the Law:   New York State Agriculture & Markets Law, Article 7, requires that dogs in New York State be licensed and wear their dog license tag.
  2. Easy Identification:   When wearing a license tag, dogs are easier to identify, enabling them to be reunited with their owner faster if they should run off.  A license is a lost dog's ticket home. 
  3. Health & Safety:   By requiring that a dog have valid rabies vaccination prior to licensing, a dog license helps to control and prevent the spread of rabies.
  4. Dog Parks:   All Monroe County Dog Parks require a valid dog license and rabies vaccination.  Follow the link or call Monroe County Department of Parks Administrative Office at (585) 753-7275 for more information.

Leash / Conduct Laws


All dogs in Webster are also subject to leash laws. They must be on a leash and controlled by the owner any time they are off the owner’s property. Any destruction or damage caused by a dog is the responsibility of the dog’s owner. This includes any noisy or disturbing conduct.
