The Town of Penfield is now conducting a Dog Census to ensure all dogs older than four (4) months are properly licensed in accordance with New York State Agriculture and Market Law Article 7. The Dog Census keeps town records up to date and in compliance with New York State Law. A mailer regarding this process has been sent to all Penfield households.
Any dog living with you for more than 30 days must be licensed. Licensing ensures all dogs have been properly vaccinated against rabies for the protection of dog owners and the community. If your dog is lost, licensing increases the chances that your dog will be returned to you.
Please follow the instructions on the mailer and return the form by mail or use the drop-off box at the east entrance of the Penfield Town Hall NO LATER THAN NOVEMBER 30, 2020. If you own a dog that needs to be licensed, or if you have information that needs to be updated (spay/neuter), please do so now. Even if you do not own a dog, please indicate that on the form and return it to the Town Clerk.
Direct questions regarding the Dog Census to the Town Clerk’s Office at (585) 340-8629.
