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.
If you are mailing in your license form, you must include a copy of the rabies vaccine certificate along with a copy of the spayed/neuter information. Please make all checks payable to the "Township of Washington" and enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope for your license to be sent. Dogs are not permitted to run at large. Owners may be subject to fine.
Teterboro Animal Shelter: Please bring all records from your vet to show proof of shots received before updated shots are administered. Free rabies 3:30-6:30, any other (paid) shots, i.e. distemper, etc. will require a fee up until 5:30 Only FREE rabies between 5:30-6:30 Visit web site here for forms to be completed, suggested not required.
