Dog and Cat Licenses must be renewed every January. The license is valid until January 31st of the following year. Any license renewal received after January 31st will incur a $5.00 late fee.
Courtesy renewal notices are mailed out to current licensees the last week of the year. Not receiving the courtesy renewal does not excuse you from the obligation of renewing your license by January 31st.
NJSA 4:19-15.2a requires dogs receiving municipal licenses to be immunized against rabies. The rabies vaccine must be valid through October 31st of the licensing year or the license can not be issued.
For new animal registrations, please provide the following:
• PROOF OF SPAYING/NEUTERING – available from your vet
• PROOF OF RABIES – If your dog’s rabies vaccine expires before October 31st of the licensing year - you will need to have the dog revaccinated prior to getting a license.
• PAYMENT IS DUE AT TIME OF APPLICATION
DOGS: $9 if spayed/neutered and $12.00 for not spayed/neutered
CATS: $9 if spayed/neutered and $12.00 for not spayed/neutered
If you no longer have your animal, please advise the Clerk’s Office so that we can keep our records up to date.
