We are presently conducting the Dog Census. Please download the application on our website at www.lopatcongtwp.com, fill out and return along with payment. If you have no dogs, please fill out name and address, put “NO DOGS” and mail back to us. The fee is $8.20 spayed/neutered, $11.20 not spayed/neutered; through January 31 only. Please send in with self-addressed envelope.
All Dogs six (6) months old must have a rabies shot and be licensed according to the Municipal Ordinance. Dog licenses are to be renewed during the month of January of each calendar year. A late fee of $2.00 per month for every month that you are late will be assessed when you renew the license.
The rabies shot must be valid through November 1st of the licensing year. If not, you must get your dog a rabies shot before a license can be issued.
Failure to comply with the ordinance could result in a summons.
If you own a dog and it is unlicensed, this notice will hereby give you five working days from the date listed below within which to make arrangements to renew or purchase a new license for your dog through the Township Clerk’s Office. This five (5) day grace period does not excuse you from the late charge of $2.00 per month (after January 31); the purpose of the grace period is to give you time to license your animal(s), otherwise a court summons may be issued.
The Clerk’s hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm, excluding holidays. If you have already licensed your dog(s), please disregard this notice.
