About Perinton Animal Control

The Animal Control Office is responsible for the protection and control of common domestic animals and nuisance wildlife for the Town of Perinton and Village of Fairport.  The office is staffed by one full-time and seven part-time Animal Control Officers that are available to assist Perinton and Fairport residents with dog or wildlife problems 24 hours a day.

The mission of the Animal Control Office is to administer the Dog Control Ordinances for the Town of Perinton and Village of Fairport as well as enforce Article 7 of the NYS Agriculture and Markets Law.  The Animal Control Officer assists the Town Clerk with Dog Licensing as well as organizes an annual Rabies Immunization Clinic that is free and available to any Perinton or Fairport resident.  This annual event is typically held in June at the Perinton Public Works Facility (100 Cobb’s Lane). Please check out our Rabies Clinics Page for more information on this event.

The Animal Control Office is also available to answer questions, or assist and advise residents on how to live with Nuisance Wildlife. If you should have additional questions or concerns, refer to the Contact Information at the bottom of this page for ways to reach us.
