Hamilton Township will hold its next free rabies immunization clinic of 2017 for residents' dogs and cats on Saturday, February 11th 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.

 

Following the February 11th clinic, Hamilton's next rabies clinic will be held on March 4th with additional clinics scheduled for 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.
