Rabies Clinic/Dog Licensing Update - May 15, 2020

Hopatcong Borough is hosting a Free DRIVE THRU Rabies clinic that will be held Friday, May 29 from 10-1pm at the Senior Center (32 Lakeside Blvd., Hopatcong, NJ 07843).   Byram Township residents as well as residents of New Jersey are welcome to attend the clinic.

To maintain a safe experience for pets, owners/handlers and the veterinarians administering vaccinations during this State of Emergency, residents are being asked to adhere to following:

  • Residents must come in a vehicle and remain in their vehicle at all times while waiting for their turn.
  • All residents MUST wear masks and practice social distancing while at the Clinic.
  • Dogs should be restrained with a non-retractable 6-foot leash or other safe control to allow a quick and unimpeded transfer to the veterinarian for vaccination.
  • Cats must be in a secured carrier to prevent escape.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Byram Township Rabies Clinic scheduled for April 18, 2020 was cancelled and the dog license due date was extended until May 31, 2020. 

All dogs residing in Byram Township are required to have a valid license and current rabies vaccination. 

Please submit your dog license registration by June 1, 2020,  to avoid a $5 late fee.  Payment by check or money order, payable to Byram Township will be accepted by mail or you may deposit it into the Administrative Office drop box located outside the building.   Any application placed in the Administrative Office Drop box or posted dated prior to June 1 will not be imposed with a late fee.
