Start the Year Off Right for Your Dog or Cat

Hamilton Holds First Free Rabies Clinic of Year for
Residents’ Dogs and Cats on Saturday, January 9th

 

If you’re a Hamilton resident, start the year off right for your dog or cat.

 

Hamilton Township will hold its first free rabies immunization clinic of the year for residents’ dogs and cats on this Saturday, January 9th at the McManimon Township Building located at 320 Scully Avenue, between the hours of 9 AM and 12 PM (Noon).  

Note for Directions: The McManimon Building at 320 Scully Avenue is located off of Olden Avenue, between Liberty Street and Cedar Lane, opposite the Olden Pharmacy.

 

As a courtesy, the clinic is open to pets of Township residents only (proof a residency is required), and is free of charge.  For residents utilizing this Hamilton Township service, all dogs must be leashed.  As a safety precaution, dogs should be muzzled, if necessary.  All cats must arrive in a carrier.

 

“Our township’s free rabies clinics are a great service offered for our resident’s dogs and cats,” says Hamilton Township Mayor Kelly Yaede.  “I encourage pet-owning residents to take full advantage of this beneficial program.”

 

Following the January 9th clinic, Hamilton’s next rabies clinic will be held on February 6th with additional clinics scheduled for March, June and September.  

 

In response to the rabies epidemic in our wildlife, the New Jersey Department of Health Policy requires the immunization of dogs every 2 years, even if the inoculation is good for a 3 year period.  2016 Dog Licenses will not be issued if a pet’s rabies immunization expires before November 1, 2016. 

 

The new 2016 Dog License Application is now available online via a link of the Township Health Division’s Division website (HamiltonNJ.com/Health) along with the full 2016 rabies clinic schedule.  Additionally, a hard copy of the dog license application is attached to the middle of the 2016 Hamilton Township Calendar, which was delivered to residents in late December.

 

As a reminder, annual dog license application are due by March 31st (by 4 PM).  Fees for the licenses are $8 for a Spayed or Neutered dog and $11 for a Non-Spayed or Neutered dogSeniors (over the age of 62) enjoy a discounted license cost at $2 for a Spayed or Neutered dog and $5 for a Non-Spayed or Neutered dog.
