If you have not yet registered your dog(s) for 2018, please see Nicole in the Municipal Building at 288 Main Street, Newport, NJ 08345, Monday through Friday, between 9am and 4pm. However, please be aware that my office will be closed from 12pm to 1pm for lunch.

The dog licenses are valid for a period of one (1) year, from January 1st to December 31st. The dog license registration fee is $7.00 for each spayed or neutered dog. However, if the dog is not spayed or neutered, then the fee is $10.00. Please bring exact change or a check. All checks should be made out to the Township of Downe. Please be sure to register your dog by March 31, 2018. In the event that a registrant fails to register their dog within the appropriate time period, then there is an additional late fee of $5.00 thereafter. Also, be sure to provide the proper documentation for each dog’s most recent rabies vaccination and for any spayed/neutered procedures, if applicable.

All rabies vaccines must be considered valid up to at least October 2018 before you can register your dog. Though, please note that the Cumberland County Department of  Health has provided seven (7) FREE rabies vaccine clinics in the month of March this year. For further details regarding the FREE rabies vaccine clinics, please see the “2018 FREE Rabies Vaccine Clinics” post on this page.
