Information on Dog and Cat Licensing in Barnegat, Little Egg Harbor, Stafford Township (Manahawkin) and Tuckerton

Responsible dog and cat owners at the Jersey Shorehave just a few more days to obtain or renew licenses for their pets.  Some municipalities charge a late fee if the license is not obtained by January 31st.

Duke is available for adoptionNew Jersey law requires the owners of all dogs that seven months of age or older have a municipal license.  In order for the license to be issued, the owner must present proof that a licensed veterinarian has vaccinated the dog against rabies and that the duration of immunity from that vaccination extends through at least ten months of the twelve-month licensing period.

State law allows an exemption to the rabies inoculation requirement if the owner presents written certification from a licensed veterinarian that the dog cannot be vaccinated due to a medical condition or course of therapy.
