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 revaccinated.  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.
