Dog/Cat License Renewals Due Soon

Posted: January 4, 2021

Update Posted January 28, 2021: Residents have reported some difficulties with the scheduling of appointments with their veterinarians due to changes in office procedures to comply with safety guidelines for COVID-19. Therefore, Randolph Township is extending the deadlines for pet licensing from January 31 (dogs) and February 28 (cats) to March 31, 2021. If the renewal is received after the March 31, 2021 deadline, there will be a $10 late fee. If you have any questions, please call the health department at 973.989.7050.

Change to Randolph’s Rabies Vaccination Program: Due to COVID-19, the Hodes Veterinary Group has opted out of Randolph’s rabies vaccination program this year. The six remaining veterinary practices have asked that pet owners inform them of the voucher prior to the administration of the vaccination.

The Randolph Township Health Department would like to remind residents that all dogs and cats must be licensed by 7 months of age and have a current tag affixed to a collar or harness.

Newly acquired dogs and cats must be licensed within ten days of acquisition.

Licenses are good for one year and must be renewed by January 31 of each year for dogs and by February 28 of each year for cats.

License applications are automatically mailed in December to all registered pet owners. For your convenience, we have also made these applications available for download from our Dog/Cat Licenses page.

As mandated under state law, a condition of licensure requires that each dog or cat has a current rabies vaccination. Please note that our free rabies immunization voucher program, as explained on the Dog/Cat Licenses page, has a defined time period for redemption—it is available between January 1 and February 28.
