What We Do

  • Respond to reported animal bites and potential exposures, including consultation with medical personnel for follow up on post-exposure medical treatment when necessary.
  • Submit suspected animal specimens to the New York State Laboratory in Albany for rabies analysis.
  • Monitor 10-day confinement and 6-month quarantine of domestic animals involved in human contact or contact with potentially rabid animals.

Rabies Vaccination Clinics

  • Conduct free rabies immunization clinics for dogs, cats and ferrets.
  • Immunization records are maintained for animals receiving immunizations at clinics.

Note: 2022 Monroe County-sponsored rabies clinics have finished for the year. They will start up again  Spring 2023. Locations and times will be posted to this website as available.
