New York State Regulations
New York law requires puppies, kittens, and baby ferrets to be vaccinated for rabies at three months of age. Please keep your animals inside away from rabies exposure for two weeks after vaccination to allow immunity to develop. If you have any questions regarding this, contact the Ontario County Public Health Office at (585) 396-4343 or toll free at 1-800-299-2995. Every dog at the age of four months is to have a valid dog license. Dog licenses can be obtained from your town clerk by providing a valid rabies certificate and must be renewed yearly. Any dog adopted from a shelter to have a license, regardless of age, therefore, the Ontario County Humane Society requires you to license your dog within five days of adoption, to comply with the law.
Please note the clinics are free but a donation is appreciated. Cats and ferrets must be in a secure container with only one animal per container. Dogs must be on a leash and under owners control at all times. Adults should accompany children under the age of 18. No one will be turned away.
