The State of New Jersey requires all dogs to be certified by a licensed veterinarian as immunized against rabies. The intent of this law is for immunity against rabies to cover the duration of the licensing period which is the calendar year. Pet owners are advised to consult their vet if they have any questions concerning vaccination overlap. The owners of a puppy or any dog who has received its first vaccination with a one year duration need to consult with the vet who administered this inoculation as to the length of the immunity the booster will provide.
If your dog is deceased or no longer living at your Clinton Township residence, please notify the Board of Health Office at 735-8800 x200. Also, it is important that all correspondence sent by the Board of Health Office be answered. Thank you.
Summonses will be issued to all dog owners who have not licensed their dog(s) for the 2015 calendar year.
