Pet Licensing


Borough Code §69, Article IV and V require the owners of dogs over the age of seven (7) months, and cats over the age of six (6) months to obtain licenses for their pets by January 31st each year. The ordinance also provides for late fees to be charged to owners who fail to obtain licenses by January 31st.

All dogs and cats must be vaccinated against rabies.

Haddonfield annually hosts a free rabies clinic typically on the last Saturday of April from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.  All residents are encouraged to bring their pets for this free service.  Borough personnel are also on hand to license your pet at that time.
