2018 Dog Licenses

Dog Licensing Information & Application

For a Stillwater Township Dog Licensing application, click here.

All dogs over seven (7) months old MUST BE LICENSED.  In order for a license to be issued, the State of New Jersey requires that the animal is vaccinated against rabies.  The rabies certificate must not expire prior to November 1st of the licensing year and if it does the animal will have to be re vaccinated.  Vaccinating early should not harm your animal however if your vet feels the animal should not be vaccinated early, have your vet write a note stating why the pet cannot be vaccinated and then a license can be issued.

Dog licenses may be obtained:

  • At the Stillwater Township Municipal Building between the hours of 8:00am and 4:00pm, Monday through Friday.
  • Mailed  to Stillwater Township Municipal, 964 Stillwater Road, Newton, NJ 07860.  They may also be placed in the black lock box located next to the Municipal Office front doors,  after hours. Any questions please call the Municipal Office at 973-383-9484.
