Start the Year Off Right for Your Dog or Cat

First Free Rabies Clinic of Year on Saturday, January 21st
Be Sure to Renew Dog Licenses

 

Hamilton Township will hold its first free rabies immunization clinic of 2017 for residents’ dogs and cats on Saturday, January 21st at the McManimon Township Building located at 320 Scully Avenue from 9 AM until 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.

 

“We are pleased to continue this great program at no charge to our community’s pet-owning residents,” says Hamilton Township Mayor Kelly Yaede. “Not only does it benefit our beloved pets, it also assists in our community’s efforts to prevent the spread of rabies.”

 

Following the January 21st clinic, Hamilton’s next rabies clinic will be held on February 11th 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.  2017 Dog Licenses will not be issued if a pet’s rabies immunization expires before November 1, 2017. 

 

The new 2017 Dog License Application is now available online via a link of the Township Health Division’s website (HamiltonNJ.com/Health) along with the full 2017 rabies clinic schedule.  Additionally, a dog license application is attached to the middle of the 2017 Hamilton Township Calendar, which was delivered to residents in late December.

 

As a reminder, annual dog license applications 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 65 (verified with an ID) enjoy a discounted license cost at $2 for a Spayed or Neutered dog and $5 for a Non-Spayed or Neutered dog.
