Animal License Reminder

Posted on March 17th, 2021

This is a reminder that all animal licenses are due no later than the close of business on March 31, 2021.  Licenses received after March 31, 2021 will incur a $20.00 late fee.  All payments and supporting documents for rabies (which must be valid through November 1, 2021) and spay/neuter can be sent to Riverside Township PO Box 188 Riverside, NJ 08075 or placed in the drop box outside of the Administrative Offices at 237 S. Pavilion Avenue.  Your license will be mailed to you.


Please be advised that beginning April 1, 2021 the Police Department will conduct a town-wide animal census in accordance with the requirements of the State of New Jersey.  If a dog or cat is located at your residence that has not been registered, a summons will be issued for violation of Riverside Township Local Ordinances, Chapter 111.  The summons will result in a minimum fine and court costs, which is in addition to the registration fee and penalty that will be due.


Should you have any questions or concerns regarding animal licensing, please contact Cheryl Hardie at 856-461-1460 x1 or
