Zero tolerance for unlicensed dogs
Beginning Feb. 1, Middle Township Animal Control will enforce a zero-tolerance policy for all dogs found at large and unlicensed in Middle Township. A summons will be issued for any unlicensed dog running at large.
Owners are urged to go to middletownship.com and download the license application. Owners also may apply for a license in person at the Township Administration Office, second floor, at 33 Mechanic St., Cape May Court House. The application must be submitted with proof of a current rabies vaccine that expires after Nov. 1. Licenses are given at a cost of $11.20 for an unaltered dog and $8.20 for any dog that is spayed or neutered. There is a grace period for licensing until Jan. 31. Licensing your dog provides proof that the dog has been vaccinated against rabies. A dog that is found at large with its license attached can easily be returned to its owners.
A free rabies clinic will take place at Middle Township Public Works, 400 W. Mechanic St., Cape May Court House, from 2 to 3 p.m. Jan. 26. This clinic is open to all cats and dogs, and dog licenses will be available. Owners are urged to complete the license application to save time purchasing a license at the clinic.
