Animal Licenses

Borough Ordinances require that all dogs and cats seven (7) months of age or older be licensed.  All dog/cat licenses expire on December 31 of the licensing year.  


  • $15 for spayed/neutered dogs and cats.  Proof from veterinarian must be shown.
  • $18 for dogs/cats that have not been spayed or neutered.
  • All licenses renewed after February 28th of the following licensing year will be charged an additional $5 late fee.


New Jersey State Statute requires that proof of rabies vaccination, good through at least ten months of the licensing year, must be shown in order to obtain a license.  This means rabies certificates must be good through the end of October of the licensing year or an update must be done before a license can be issued.  

Both the Monmouth County Regional Health Commission and the Monmouth County Health Department offer free rabies clinics to any Monmouth County resident.  For more information, please use the links below:
