Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for the return of your documents, the license and the tag. For additional information please call (585) 248-6211 or (585) 248-6240.

Are there restrictions on my dog?

If you are a dog owner please be considerate of your neighbors. Do not allow your dog to bark for long periods of time, run off leash in public areas or cause a nuisance on other resident’s property. It is important that we all work together in order to make our community a better place to live.
