Animal Control

Animal Control

The Town of Greece Animal Control Department is responsible for the control and protection of common domestic animals in the Town of Greece. Animal Control Officers enforce Chapter 89 of the code of the Town of Greece as well as related New York State, Monroe County and Town ordinances that pertain to the care, control and licensing of domestic animals with the priority to protect public safety and animal welfare. Animal Control Officers are also responsible for organizing annual Free Rabies Immunization Clinics to assist residents with stray pets and provide residents with information and resources on wildlife and domestic animal safety.


• Stray dogs and cats are taken to an offsite secure environment. The stray will be released to the owner once proof has been provided that the animal has a current rabies vaccination and license. Impound and boarding fees must be paid prior to release of the animal. Animal Control Officers must be contacted to facilitate the release of the animal.

In general, it is recommended to leave wildlife alone. However, the Town of Greece Animal Control Department does assist with sick, injured and aggressive wildlife as well as a variety of nuisance wildlife situations that may arise for residents.
