The Bergenfield Health Department will conduct its annual rabies vaccination program for cats and dogs on Tuesday, January 3rd 4PM to 6PM and Thursday, January 12th, 6PM to 8PM at the Department of Public Works Garage. You may license your pet as well at this time but license renewal will continue by mail or in person through the month of January. The DPW garage is located directly behind the Bergenfield Borough Hall at 198 North Washington Avenue. All dogs must be leashed and cats should be in an approved animal carrier for their safety.
Dogs and cats may be vaccinated as early as three months of age and MUST be re-vaccinated within one year after the animal’s initial immunization. After that, the animal is required to be revaccinated every three years.
IMPORTANT: If your pet’s rabies vaccination expires anytime in 2017 you must VACCINATE your pet in January of 2017 in order to obtain a 2017 license.
