Reminder to Get Dog and Cat Licenses

Get your pet license by March 31 to avoid a $15 late fee.

The Gloucester Township Clerk's Office is currently issuing new and renewal dog and cat licenses.

To avoid a $15 late fee, you must get your pet license by March 31.

March 31 falls on a Sunday this year, so, with township offices only open Monday through Thursday, you will need to get your pet licensed by the end of business on Thursday, March 28, to avoid the late fee.

Licenses will only be granted to those pet owners who provide proof of current rabies vaccinations for their pets.

The cost to license a spayed or neutered pet is $21. The cost for an intact animal is $24.

The Clerk's Office is open for in-person pet licensing Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

You can also apply for a pet license by mail by sending a check made out to "Township of Gloucester" to:

Darren I have a life, that's why I was referring the task to you. I as you can see from my 1st post do not believe the fees are excessive in fact I think they are very reasonable. Would I like to pay nothing? of course, and I'm sure everyone would rather pay nothing. I gave you information because you genuinely seem to have so much misguided hatred. It's ok to be mad at government but if your going to be upset at least blame the right people. I am 50 years old I remember my parents paying for licensing my pets since I was a kid. Back then I lived on Tarsdale Avenue in Philadelphia. Are you going to try and blame that on this mayor too, I don't think he was even born yet at the time. You seem to have so much energy direct it and use it wisely. The good lord may just answer your prayers if you direct your energy toward good. Exile the demons within you will have a better life in the long run, turn to the lord for guidance.

Paul you are correct it is not a democrat or Republican issue but it also is not government trying to regulate our lives. I believe it is government making sure they can keep rabies related bites to a minimum by verifying the vaccinations are done and kept up to date. Here is something to complain about if you want to argue an issue and on this I think we will all agree. Why does it cost more to license a complete pet then a fixed pet. After all the reason for the fee is to keep records of who has animals and if they are updated on their shots, why does it matter if they are spay and neutered? Now that is the part I have a problem with.

Gee whiz, Andre, I wonder how we ever got along without the government telling us what is good or bad. Gee, before government came along I never cared whether my dog got rabies. Let's see, let's make rabies shots mandatory and then let's make licensure mandatory to make sure the first mandatory requirement was fulfilled. Here's the thing, it's already illegal to shoot a firearm off in public so why would we need to pass a law that makes it illegal to fire off a firearm in the air on New Year's Eve and the Fourth of July? It's already illegal to kill somebody but it makes sense to make it doubly illegal to kill somebody if you hate them for their sexual orientation. Wisdom personified, don't you think?

Paul, I am not sure why you are going way off course or why you feel a dog license compares somehow to killing someone but I'm not here to understand you or try to make you understand me. We have already gone well past animal licensing and at this point I would say may the good lord bless you with all his wisdom so you can carry on your mission, whatever it may be.

Township don't care if you have a dog or cat. The township only wants the money. This year they didn't even send out renewal notices...
