Dog / Cat Licensing

Cat and Dog

The Borough of Kenilworth requires that all CATS and DOGS over the age of 7 months be licensed annually. Licenses are issued by the Borough Clerk's office and once issued, are valid thru December 31st of the year licensed.

As noted on the State of New Jersey website (See Department of Health, Dog Licensing,) “An Exemption to the rabies inoculation requirement shall be granted if the owner presents written certification from a licensed veterinarian that the dog cannot be vaccinated due to a medical condition or course of therapy.”  In order to be exempt, please complete the Rabies Vaccination Exemption Form and include that with your submission in lieu of a vaccination certificate.
