The Ridgewood Health Department would like to remind residents of the annual FREE dog rabies clinic on Wednesday, May 15, 2013 from 6pm until 7 pm at the Recycling Center on Glen Avenue. All dogs must be accompanied by an adult and leashed or contained in a carrying case.
Supervisor of Health Dawn Cetrulo would like to remind Village of Ridgewood residents that 2013 dog license renewals are due during the month of June. A $20 late fee will be charged for all renewals received after June 30, 2013.
The health department will be sending renewals via email. If you do not have an email address please call our office and request a renewal to be mailed to you. Renewal applications may also be obtained by visiting our website at www.ridgewoodnj.net or coming in person to the Ridgewood Health Department, 131 North Maple Ave. The office hours are Monday to Friday from 8:30 am until 4:30 pm.

New Jersey law requires owners of all dogs seven months of age or older to be registered with the town they live in. In order for the license to be issued, the owner must present proof that a licensed veterinarian has vaccinated the dog against rabies and that the duration of immunity from that vaccination does not expire before May 1, 2014. To receive the discount for a spayed or neutered pet, proof must also be provided.
