There is no leash law for cats; therefore, the owners are not breaking any laws.  The cats, unfortunately, can wander wherever they want.  If you want to keep cats out of your yard, garden, etc., you can try a repellant.  A commercial repellant can be purchased at farm & garden stores and pet stores. There are also repellants you can make yourself and try.  You can go online to find some or you can call Animal Control at (585) 359-7009, they have a list they can mail to you that has a variety of things you can try.  If the cat appears feral (wild) and doesn't belong to anyone, AC can loan you a humane trap to catch it.  They will show you how to bait it, set it and the best location to place it along with other tips on how to catch the cat.

Once you catch it, however, the cat is your responsibility; take it to Lollypop Farm, a rescue group, keep it or find it a home.  AC does not pick up cats.

If the animal is able to walk it is best to leave it alone.  Keep children and pets away from it while it wanders through.  If the animal cannot stand and/or walk and is a Canada goose, deer, fox or coyote, you need to call the DEC at (585) 226-2466.  For smaller animals, for example, rabbit, bird or woodchuck, call Animal Control at (585) 359-7009 and they will pick up the injured animal.  Once AC picks up the animal it is checked by a Veterinarian who determines if the animal is a candidate for a rehabilitator or should be humanely euthanized.  AC can also give you the names and telephone numbers of rehabilitators that may take the animal if you prefer to contact them yourself.
