Dog & Cat Licensing

 This is just a reminder that any dog or cat applications received after March 1 by the Board of Health, will incur a $10.00 late fee in addition to the license fee.  Any application that is not received by March 15th will be subject to a summons for $74 under the Borough Ordinance Code 129-2.   The Health Office is at 1167 River Road, the Edgewater Community Center.  


All dogs and cats over the age of 6 months must be licensed. Renewals of dog and cat licenses are due by January 31 of each year. A late fee of $10 will be charged if you do not license by March 1. Owners must show proof of rabies vaccination in order to receive a license.

West Nile Virus

Surveillance of the West Nile Virus is through the State testing of mosquitoes and recently deceased crows, hawks and falcons. It is requested that residents advise the Health Department of any dead birds.

Mosquito Commission

The Bergen County Mosquito Commission is concentrating on preventing mosquito breeding. Residents are asked to assist by checking their own properties for any items that hold water such as buckets, tires, toys, wheelbarrows, trash cans, etc., and either discard them or turn them over so they cannot accumulate standing water.
