 Who Can Bring Animals to our Clinics? 

Any resident of New Jersey may bring their dogs and cats to any clinic held in the State. All dogs and cats over six months of age must be vaccinated against RABIES prior to licensing.

Please Note:
Montgomery Township Board of Health has passed an ordinance stating the cats residing in the Township are also required to be immunized against rabies. This began in 2016. The State of New Jersey law requires proof of the appropriate vaccination before a dog or cat license can be issued. Click HERE to learn more.

Why Immunize?
It is important for all pet owners to be sure their dogs and cats have protection against rabies. Some Montgomery Township pets have had to undergo quarantine because they were attacked by rabid wildlife (mostly raccoons). All pets that were currently vaccinated remained healthy during their ten day home quarantine period. The owners of pets that were not vaccinated at the time they were exposed to rabid wildlife had to choose to either euthanize their pet or quarantine their pet for a six-month period. (Quarantine periods are set by New Jersey State Law).
