Due to the popularity of this event and the limited supply of vaccines, we will not be able to accept those without appointments.
6/7/21 Update: All Appointments are full. Visit Monroe County’s website for a list of upcoming clinics.
The Town of Perinton, in partnership with Monroe County and Fairport Animal Hospital, will hold a free rabies immunization clinic on Saturday, June 12, by online appointment only from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. The drive-thru clinic will take place at the Perinton Department of Public Works, 100 Cobb’s Lane, Fairport, NY 14450. Both dogs and cats can be immunized at the clinic but must be at least three months old. All appointments are full.
Those attending the clinic should plan to arrive at their scheduled time and remain in their vehicle until asked to exit with the animal. Dogs must be leashed, and cats must be in a sturdy pet carrier upon arrival. A copy of a prior rabies vaccination record is required to receive a 3-year rabies vaccination. Without records, a one-year initial vaccination will be provided. All shots are provided at no charge.
Perinton Town Clerk Jen West and her staff will once again be on hand to help any Perinton and Fairport dog-owners obtain a new dog license or renewal, as required by NY State Agriculture & Markets Law. Dog licensing ensures that your pet is vaccinated, and that your dog can be quickly reunited with you should she/he become lost.
Rabies is a viral infection that is fatal once symptoms develop. Health officials & NYS Law require up-to-date rabies vaccinations to prevent the transmission of rabies from a pet – that has come in contact with a rabid animal – to a person that subsequently touches the exposed pet.
Appointments for the Free Rabies Immunization Clinic are required. Further information about the clinic can be obtained by calling (585) 223-5115.
