Animal Licenses

All dogs and cats seven (7) months of age or older and kept in the Township of East Brunswick for more than ten (10) days are required to be licensed; license(s) should be worn by said animal. Failure to obtain a valid animal license can result in a fine in accordance with Township Code Section 83-33. 

All animal licenses are for the calendar year, January 1 through December 31. All license renewals must be received by March 31st of the licensing year. Postmarks are not acceptable. All renewals received after March 31st of the licensing year are subject to a $5.00 late fee. 

All applications and/or renewals for animal licenses should be remitted to the Township by mail only, along with a check made payable to the Township of East Brunswick. Proof of rabies vaccination and spaying/neutering is required for all new licenses. 

Proof of new vaccinations must accompany renewals. New Jersey law requires that all animals with rabies vaccinations expiring between January 1st and October 31st of the licensing year must be revaccinated before a new license can be issued. Copies only of new certificates should be remitted, as documentation will not be returned. 

Failure to provide the appropriate documentation and/or fee will result in your application/renewal being returned unprocessed. No exceptions.
