From Dec 1st, 2019 until Dec 24th, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. (Noon), dog/cat pet owners who purchase their 2020 cat/dog tags will be charged a special rate.

Regular cat/dog tag prices will resume January 2nd, 2020 and all cats/dogs are to be licensed annually and before January 31st, 2020.

If your cat/dog is visibly tattooed or implanted with a microchip you only need to register your cat/dog once and no tag will be issued. The early bird cat/dog tag sale applies.

Did you know…If a cat/dog currently registered with the Township has left home and is wearing its dog/cat tag, or is visibly tattooed or implanted with a microchip, you the owner can be contacted quickly and your pet gets one free ride home, (providing your pet is not problematic). Cat/dog tag fees are also used to assist Protective Services in identifying our pet population and to offset animal control costs.
