January is Dog/Cat Licensing Month

Dear Mount Arlington Borough Residents,
If you own a dog or cat, we would like to remind you that January is

animal licensing month.  To license your animal for calendar year
2023 the rabies certification must be valid through November 1, 2023. If the rabies certification is no longer valid, we will need an updated vaccination certificate from your vet.

Please either send the licensing renewal fee along with a self-addressed stamped envelope to Mount Arlington Borough Hall, 419 Howard Blvd., Mount Arlington, NJ 07856 or stop by our office. We have a drop box in the vestibule of Borough Hall for after-hours visits.  We are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 4:30 PM. In addition, Borough Hall will be open until 7:30 PM on the second Thursday of each month and will close at 12:30 PM the following Friday of each month as noted on our website.

If you no longer own your pet or have moved out of the Borough, we apologize for any inconvenience. Please call the Borough Hall at 973- 398-6832, Ex. 112 or 125 so we can update our records.
The dog licensing fees are $16.00 if your dog is spayed/neutered or
$19.00 if your dog is not spayed/neutered. Cat licensing fees are $15.00 if your cat is spayed/neutered or $18.00 if your cat is not spayed/neutered. A late fee of $1.00 for each month starting February 1, 2023 will also be required. Payment may be made by check made out to the Borough of Mount Arlington or cash (exact change is appreciated no cards please).

The Animal Census is scheduled for 2023. If you are found to have an unlicensed animal in your home, you may be subject to a summons from the Animal Control office. Licensing your animal in January is the best way to avoid this.
