Animal Control & Dog Licensing

Rabies Clinic

On Wednesday, September 11, 2019 the Town Clerk’s Office, in conjunction with the Monroe County Health Department and Webster Veterinary Clinic, held a free rabies clinic at the Webster Highway Department on Picture Parkway. This clinic was for anyone who brought their cat or dog for a vaccine.  At this clinic 115 dogs, 53 cats and 7 ferrets were vaccinated for rabies.  Also, Webster Town Clerk staff were on hand to license dogs.

We would like to extend a special thank you to Andrea Blitz, Veterinarian, and Elizabeth Bridgetts, Veterinarian Technician from the Village Vet, for providing us with their professional services.  We would also like to thank Nancy Thompson and the dedicated staff at the Monroe County Health Department, and Nick Mooney our Animal Control Officer for their assistance.

Of course, the clinic was also successful due to the assistance and preparation from Katie Hanlon, Jackie Bates and Sharon Williamson from the Webster Town Clerk’s Office.

Dog Licenses

Dogs four months and older in the Town or Village of Webster must be licensed through the Webster Town Clerk. Licenses are renewable annually with proof of a current rabies vaccination, and can be brought into the office or mailed in to the Town Clerks Office, 1000 Ridge Road, Webster, NY 14580

The original license is easiest to apply for in person at the Town Clerk's Office.  Please bring your updated rabies certificate and proof of spay or neuter when licensing your dog. 

Town of Webster Dog Licensing Fees (Cash or Check only)

  • $10.00 - neutered / spayed dogs
  • $20.00 - un-neutered / un-spayed dogs
  • $2.00 late charge added if license is renewed after 90 days from due date

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.
