Pet License

The 2016 licenses are available!

A license may be issued with durations of one to three years. The license shall expire at the point that the rabies certificate for the animal expires or one, two or three years from the date of issuance, whichever comes first.

License fees:
Unaltered dog - $50 (one year license only)
Spayed/Neutered dog - $15 (one year)
Spayed/Neutered dog - $27 (two years)
Spayed/Neutered dog - $39 (three years)

Every dog that lives in the Borough and is over the age of 4 months is required to have a current Borough License.

A new license must be purchased every year by January 1 for all dogs over the age of 4 months.  You may obtain your license in person at the shelter, by mail, or on-line. 

You will need to know your pet's rabies tag number, the expiration date, and the vet clinic that administered the vaccine. All of this information is available on your pet's rabies certificate. Your vet clinic is often willing to fax the certificate to us at 228-6679.
All Borough residents over the age of 65 are entitled to one free dog license per calendar year, as long as the pet has not been deemed potentially dangerous.
