PET LICENSING


Renewal Letters are mailed by December 31 to current pet owners on record for renewal by January 31 to avoid any late fees.  If you no longer own your pet or have acquired a new one, kindly advise the Clerk’s office.

Pursuant to N.J.A.C. 8:23A-4.2, to issue a dog license, the pet owner must first supply to the dog licensing clerk a rabies vaccination certificate signed by a licensed veterinarian indicating that the animal’s duration of immunity extends throughout at least the first ten months of the twelve-month licensing period. Animals that have duration of immunity which expires prior to the ten-month cut-off must receive a booster rabies vaccination prior to licensure. Dogs six (6) months of age may receive their first rabies shot, a one-year vaccine, please consult your vet.  Boostering the animal’s immunity before expiration of the previous vaccination has not been associated with an increased occurrence of adverse reactions.
