Middle Township will begin a “zero tolerance” policy for unlicensed dogs found in the municipality beginning Feb. 1.

The township’s Police Department said a summons will be issued for any dog which is found running at large that is not licensed with the township.

The township’s Animal Control office recommends all cats and dogs be kept indoors when unsupervised since rabies is fatal to the animals.

Symptoms of rabies include stumbling or wobbly movement, overly friendly behavior, lethargy, paralysis, extreme aggression or excess salivation. Additionally, seeing a nocturnal mammal such as a raccoon or skunk that is active during daylight hours and exhibiting one or more of the above symptoms should be reported.

Anyone who sees a wild or stray animal exhibiting these symptoms should call Middle Township Animal Control at 609-465-8700.

Dog licenses can be applied for at www.middletownship.com or at the Township Administration Office, 2nd floor, at 33 Mechanic Street, Cape May Court House.
