Dog License Renewal

Marilyn deRussy, Secretary to the Hasbrouck Heights Board of Health, reminds all dog owners that their 2005 dog license will expire on January 31, 2006 and must be renewed during the month of January to avoid an administrative fee in addition to the cost of the license.  All licenses will be issued in number order as they are received.  Licenses will be available starting Wednesday, January 4, 2006.

Owners are reminded that the dog(s) must be immunized against rabies for the first 10 full months of 2006. Dogs with rabies immunizations which will expire prior to October 2006 should receive a booster prior to applying for the new license.   Fees for the year 2006 will remain the same: $7.00 if altered; $10.00 unaltered.

Licenses can be obtained by mail by enclosing a copy of the current rabies certificate, proof of spaying or neutering along with the license fee with checks made payable to: Borough of Hasbrouck Heights and sent with a self-addressed, stamped envelope to: Health Department, 320 Boulevard, Hasbrouck Heights, NJ 07604.  If applying in person, the Health Department will issue the license between the hours of 10:00 a.m. to noon and from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Failure to renew a license will result in legal action. All licenses are issued in the order they are received. Please call 201-288-1636 to advise the Health Department if you no longer have your pet. ##
